Florida DEP/ UF Bag Survey Complete

Well, at long last, here it is! After last year’s legislative win, the FDEP contracted the University of Florida (UF) to conduct an online survey to learn more about the use of disposable plastic bags, auxiliary materials and wrappings (UF IRB Protocol Number IRB202101831) by Florida residents.

This will be the update to the 2010 report mandated before 12/31/21 from the 2021 Florida Legislature.

The survey ended on 10/31/21 and we’re anxiously awaiting the presentation of the report to the Legislature in the next few weeks. Please get involved and let your voice on plastics in Florida be heard!
