Your contribution will support:

  • Storytelling that illuminates critical issues and offers viewers opportunities to create a better world, including our upcoming YouTube series Growing Solutions.
  • People-powered campaigns that reduce waste and spur innovation, like our efforts to defend public water and prevent plastic pollution.
  • Meaningful opportunities to cultivate the power of citizen changemakers through small grants, trainings, and strategic partnerships with grassroots groups.

In 2020 alone, your contributions made it possible for us to:

  • Reach hundreds of thousands of viewers with our award-winning, feature-length documentary, The Story of Plastic, and over a million viewers with our other video content. 
  • Pass groundbreaking plastics reduction legislation, including California’s pioneering recycling content mandate.
  • Stand up to corporate behemoths like Nestlé, Coke, and Amazon and hold them to account for their anti-environmental, anti-worker, anti-democratic practices.
  • Engage thousands in meaningful changemaking opportunities, like our Daily Good series this spring.
  • Make $50,000 in small grants to grassroots environmental justice groups on the front lines of the fights we care about, from plastic pollution to water privatization.

Help us write a new Story about a world that values sustainability and justice as much as we value our Stuff.
