Ask Your Member of Congress To Co-sponsor the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act!
The Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act is a comprehensive federal bill addressing the root causes of the plastic pollution crisis.
For years legislators have sought to fix plastic pollution by making tweaks to recycling to little effect. Now the #BreakFreeFromPlastic movement has developed a comprehensive bill regulating plastics from the moment oil and gas leaves the wellhead through to ending the dumping of our waste on Global South countries.
The bill would ban waste exports, pause the massive build-out of new plastic factories, establish a 'polluter pays' principle to waste management, and would ban some of the worst offending single-use plastics products, among other measures.
The bill will face fierce resistance from industry lobbyists in Washington DC in the months ahead, that’s why we need to build support for the legislation by having as many Members of Congress endorse the bill as possible.
