FACTSHEET: Council for Solid Waste Solutions, CSWS

DETAILS

According to PR Watch's Disinfopedia: "The Council for Solid Waste Solutions, sponsored by plastics manufacturers, claims that its purpose is to promote recycling of plastics products. In reality, its mission is to promote public acceptance of plastic products, many of which cannot be economically recycled."

CSWS is "a special task force created by 16 leading plastics manufacturers to address solid waste issues" and shares office space with the Society of the Plastic Industry, Inc. (http://www.rma.org/about_rma/biographies/ and Sharon Beder, Global Spin: The Corporated Assault on Environmentalism)
