    Subject: Tell Consumer Brands: Take Responsibility for the Plastic Pollution Your Products Cause!
    Hello friend,

    Did you know that 91% of plastics ever produced have not been recycled and experts estimate that by 2050, the oceans will have more plastic than fish? Yet corporations plan to increase plastic production by over 40% in the next decade with the fossil fuel industry investing $200 billion towards new plastic factories!

    We can't recycle our way out this problem and we must stop plastic pollution at the source by demanding consumer brands to take responsibility for the plastic they produce.

    Please join me today in holding the producers of plastic pollution accountable! http://http://action.storyofstuff.org/sign/corporate-accountability/?source=taf

    Thank you

    91% of plastics ever produced have not been recycled2 and experts estimate that by 2050, the oceans will have more plastic than fish.3

    Yet the petrochemical industry plans to increase plastic production by over 40% in the next decade4 with the fossil fuel industry investing $200 billion towards new plastic factories.

    Around the world, people are experiencing the destructive impacts of plastic pollution more than ever before.

    From towns in the U.S. exposed to hazardous pollutants during plastic production...

    To communities in Asia drowning in imported plastic waste...

    Recycling alone won't solve the growing plastic pollution crisis. Demand companies to take responsibility and reduce the plastic they produce!
