Established in 2010, AB 2398 set forth first, and currently the only, state mandated carpet stewardship program in the country. Clean up bills AB 1158 (2017, Chu) and AB 729 (2019, Chu) set national precedent for eco-modulated fees and added protections to the consumer fee money. This program is consumer-funded and producer-run and recently sent to compliance enforcement for not meeting legislated performance requirements.

Did you know that batteries are in almost every household item, including some items we might not even notice? Batteries are embedded into everything from children's toys to hand-held mixers, and even children's shoes. Make sure to check for batteries before throwing things away as batteries should not be in the trash or recycling bin. Refer to your local waste manager for safe disposal options.

Small nonprofits, like CPSC, have to rally their coalition and work hard against the large oil industry and the massive amount of money they funnel into their lobbyists. #EPR #bigoil
