The House approved and sent to the Senate a bill designating September 14 as Plastic Pollution Action Day, in recognition of the need to address the environmental impact of plastic pollution. House sponsor Rep. Marjorie Decker (D-Cambridge) did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call to comment on the bill’s passage.

Sen. Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett), the Senate sponsor of the measure, said he is encouraged that the bill passed the House. “It is a very simple bill that would designate a date for plastic pollution awareness and action,” said DiDomenico. “Plastic consumption is something every consumer can work towards reducing and eventually eliminating. With the passage of this bill I hope it will broaden our community awareness of the impact of plastic pollution.”
