Fact Sheet: Vote for Developing a Circular Economy in Colorado – HB22-1159
Released in 2022
Supply chain issues have greatly impacted businesses across Colorado and spurred inflation that hurts consumers and Colorado families. To relieve supply-chain constraints, Colorado has an opportunity to create a more circular economy within the state, where more local businesses make new products from locally recycled materials and return those materials back into our state’s economy. The benefits include a robust source for essential materials for manufacturing, including paper, glass, metal, and plastics; less waste going to the landfill; reduced transportation costs and emissions; and local job creation.
