SB 343: Ban on Misleading Recycling Labels

California recently signed into law nine bills that aim to help the environment.
 
SB-343 bans companies from putting misleading labels on packages that give the impression they can be recycled. When non-recyclable items are put in the recycling, they can contaminate the recycling stream and even result in perfectly recyclable items getting sent to landfills.
