Hundreds of people joined in a social network with events, arts, and discussions around the impacts of plastic and what we can do about it.

From Alexis Goldsmith, Beyond Plastics – Working To End Single-Use Plastic Pollution

We’re calling on Congress and the Biden Administration to use any forthcoming federal stimulus or spending bills help tackle our plastic pollution crisis and advance regenerative, inclusive solutions that are good for our environment, our health, and our economy.

A new report issued by our coalition of 257 organizations identifies 13 priorities to include and 5 false solutions to avoid in any spending bills to begin to address our burgeoning plastic pollution and climate change crises.

Please join us in urging your members of Congress to follow the recommendations highlighted in the report. Click here to email your Senators and Representative now >>
