To tackle plastic pollution, we need big, systemic change.
Plastic pollution is a global issue that is killing wildlife, ending up in our oceans and waterways, and lasting far longer than it is used. And while individual action adds up, we also need big, systemic change and a way to hold those in power accountable. That's why we need to pass the groundbreaking Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act.

The Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act will ambitiously tackle plastic waste and production — at the source, on a national scale, and by holding the companies producing plastic responsible, rather than consumers or communities.
The plastic industry — also known as the oil and gas industry, as plastic is actually made from fossil fuels — is not helping. Despite feeble attempts to create "solutions," they continue to fail to address the root cause of the plastic pollution problem: all of the wasteful, single-use plastic that is being made and distributed.
Cleaning up plastic waste in our environment without decreasing the amount of plastic created is literally the equivalent of mopping the ocean floor. Doesn’t make any sense, right?
Take action now and let's demand that Congress put the health of people and the planet ahead of corporations and polluters' profit.
