A survey by the Consumer Brands Association and Ipsos found that 84% of shoppers in the US report they are worried about plastic and packaging waste, and the survey also notes that the $1.2 billion infrastructure plan currently introduced in the Senate could greatly improve US recycling. "Not only is this an important step forward for the CPG industry, which has long called for more federal involvement in our broken recycling system, but it is also an important win for consumers who want to protect their environment and ensure items tossed into their bins are actually recycled," said Katie Denis, vice president of research and industry narrative at Consumer Brands.
