California Plastic Gift Card Ban Update

The Governor of California vetoed the plastic gift card bill (SB 728) on October 8, 2023. In returning the Bill without signature, the Governor stated he was “concerned that an outright ban without any incentives for compliance will disproportionately impact the state’s small business community…” Newsom further encouraged the Legislature “…to consider alternatives to a statutory, single-products ban to help meet the state’s plastic waste reduction goals”. On January 25, 2024, the bill was stricken from file and the veto was sustained.
