Plastic Bags & Styrofoam Are Out

A new law awaiting the governor’s signature will require retailers in Colorado to stop using plastic bags beginning in late 2022. 

Additionally, restaurants will be restricted from using Styrofoam containers.   

House Bill 1162 passed a final vote in the House on Tuesday by a vote of 44-21 with a handful of Republicans joining the Democratic majority. The sponsors believe the best way to limit the environmental damage from single-use plastic products is to restrict their use entirely.
