Oppose a Blanket Ban on Carbon Black in New York State
New York State Legislature Considering Ban on Carbon Black – the Primary Pigment in Black Printing Ink

We need you to weigh in with your New York State Legislative leaders on this issue – ASAP!

New York legislation S.4246-B/A 5322-B is currently in committee and moving quickly.

If signed into law, this legislation would ban the use of carbon black, the primary pigment in black ink, in the production of labels, packaging and other products.

Environmental groups are expressing concerns about the use of carbon black that are not based in scientific data.

Unfortunately, unless your elected NYS legislators hear differently from you, that is what they will base their decision on for this legislation.

Understandably, NYS S.4246-B/A 5322 B is not that. Please take a moment to visit our Legislative Action Center to weigh in with your elected NYS legislative representatives.

The problem of toxins and microplastics in our environment are real, but they will not be solved without a balanced, science-based solution that has been thoroughly and productively discussed by all stakeholders.
