The plastics industry has exploited the coronavirus pandemic to leverage new markets and continue pushing their social, environmental and financial costs of plastic onto the public. It’s time to fight back!
The Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act is a comprehensive new federal bill addressing the root causes of the plastic pollution crisis. 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 sharp resistance from industry lobbyists in Washington DC in the months ahead, that’s why we need to build support for the legislation by having more Members of Congress endorse the bill ahead of upcoming votes.
Ask your Member of Congress to co-sponsor the Break Free from Plastic Pollution Act!
