Update the Mass
The Bottle Bill is the state’s most successful recycling and litter
prevention program. Since the Bottle Bill's inception in 1983, over 30
billion containers have been redeemed, contributing to a healthier
environment, cleaner and safer communities, and a stronger economy. But
to keep up with the times and consumer’s tastes, the bottle bill must be
updated. An Updated Bottle Bill would expand our container deposit
system to include “new age” drinks such as non-carbonated beverages,
water, iced tea, juice, and sports drinks. It would decrease litter -
and increase recycling.
Plastic Bags in Massachusetts
Retailers love plastic bags – they’re cheap, easy to use, and take
up very little space. They're so aerodynamic that even when properly
disposed of, they still blow away and become litter. They easily escape
from the garbage trucks, landfills, boats, and often average consumers’
hands. Not only a visible eyesore, plastic bags are dangerous to
wildlife. They are often mistaken as food by marine mammals and
seabirds. The United Nations estimates that plastic bags kill 1 billion
animals per year . These animals suffer a painful death as the plastic
wraps around their intestines or they choke to death.
The coal burning plants in Massachusetts: Salem Harbor Station,
Mount Tom (Holyoke), and Brayton Point Station (Somerset), are the

Energy campaign in Massachusetts is focused on smart energy solutions
that will keep Massachusetts healthy and free from unwanted dirty fuel
sources. Join us in our fight against coal
