The Product Stewardship Institute (PSI) responded to the Plastics Industry Association by calling on industry "to take the next step closer to home: help California and other state and local governments in the U.S. by taking part in extended producer responsibility [EPR] for packaging, designing plastic products to be safer and more recyclable, helping to expand recycling infrastructure and education, and focusing on the production of high-value products instead of problematic convenience items."
