Join The Movement to End Single Use Plastics
From the deepest ocean trenches to the arctic ice sheets, plastic pollution everywhere. There’s a lie at the heart of this problem -- that litterbugs are to blame. It’s time to change the narrative about who’s really responsible for plastic pollution.
The world is drowning in plastics that pollute at every stage of their lifecycle. Starting with the health of communities near extraction and refinery sites, polluting frontline communities in Global South through to the 800 million tons ending up in our ocean each year. In the face of this crisis, industry plans to ramp up plastic production by 40% over the next decade.
When future generations look upon the plastic polluting our ecosystems they won’t ask why we didn’t recycle more, they will ask why products taking minutes to consume were produced in packaging that lasts for centuries.
We’re at the forefront of a movement of almost 1300 organizations that are fighting back, uniting communities in the Global North and South working to end the scourge of disposable plastics and we need your help.
In 2017 we won a landmark campaign banning microbeads in the US and we’re joined by a growing movement globally that are quitting single use plastics and organizing municipal and regional bans. But we need to go further together to catalyze fundamental changes to the system. Will you join us to end the scourge of single use plastics?
We believe we can win by:
- shifting the narrative about who’s responsible for plastic pollution;
- holding responsible companies accountable for pollution; and
- pushing for real solutions: less plastic, a circular materials economy and rethinking how we deliver goods.
