UNEA 5.2 and Global Plastics Treaty Advocacy Toolkit

On March 2, the United Nations approved a landmark agreement to create the world’s first-ever global plastics pollution treaty, adopted upon the conclusion of the resumed fifth session of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA 5.2).

The mandate, titled “End plastic pollution: Towards an international legally binding instrument,” sets the stage for governments to negotiate a comprehensive and legally binding treaty that will cover measures along the entire life cycle of plastic. In addition, the mandate will serve to guide the development of the treaty itself, which an International Negotiating Committee (INC) will be tasked with drafting by the end of 2024.

As countries enter the negotiation phase towards a global plastics treaty, the pressure from civil society will be instrumental to ensure that:

• the ambition of the mandate is preserved and made tangible
• the process includes meaningful and diverse public participation
• the resulting treaty creates more equitable systems to both prevent and stop plastic pollution.

#breakfreefromplastic allies and members are calling
for a global #PlasticsTreaty, see what they’re saying online:

This witandwisdom.tv video is so good 👌😩!

Yes, plastic pollution is destroying our planet and plastic starts polluting the moment it is created. 

Next week, the United Nations are meeting in Nairobi, Kenya to discuss regulating plastics at a global level. We need a solution that matches the scale of the problem and a global #PlasticsTreaty is that solution! 

It means keeping oil and gas in the ground to turn off the plastic tap, it means big brands switching to refill and reuse systems, it means working in solidarity with frontline communities, and it means a better air and climate.

WE DID IT 🎉🙌 World first global plastics pollution treaty!

On the last day of #UNEA5 in Nairobi, 175 nations 🌐 agreed to open negotiations for a global, legally binding #PlasticsTreaty.

🎯 The objective is no longer to focus on recycling & waste management but to end plastic pollution "based on a comprehensive approach that addresses the full lifecycle of plastic”.

💥 This is the first time the international community has united to tackle the growing plastic crisis, making it the most significant environmental deal since the 2015 Paris Agreement. THIS IS HISTORIC! 

🌊 For more than 30 years, we have been fighting against plastic pollution of the Ocean in Europe. Alongside the global breakfreefromplastic movement, we never stopped to call on and discuss with the European authorities to respond concretely to the urgent plastic crisis of our Ocean and our blue planet

✊ Now the fight truly begins. Before final adoption in 2024, a long road of negotiation will start to determine the content of the Plastics Treaty. It must focus on:
✅ reducing production
✅ redesigning products for non-toxicity, reusability & durability

📢 You can count on us to keep pressure until we have a strong and ambitious treaty.

Huge thanks and congratulations to each and every one of you who worked tirelessly for years to make this happen. 🙏💙

The vast majority of the world's countries agreed Wednesday to forge a legally-binding global treaty restricting plastic pollution, in a move one official said demonstrated "multilateral cooperation at its best."

Negotiators representing 175 nations met over the past week in Nairobi, Kenya to discuss a joint proposal originally presented by Rwandan and Peruvian representatives.

The countries reached an agreement Wednesday to forge a treaty by 2024, with the details of the pact to be decided in upcoming talks.

The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) said the agreement marked a "historic day in the campaign to beat plastic pollution," which was responsible for more greenhouse gas pollution in 2015 than all the world's airplanes combined, according to one study.

"Plastic pollution has grown into an epidemic," said Espen Barth Eide, president of the U.N. Environment Assembly and Norway's minister for climate and the environment. "With today's resolution we are officially on track for a cure."

The resolution calls on countries to hammer out a final treaty which could ban single-use plastics. Making up the vast majority of all #plastic products in the world, only 9% of single-use plastic is ever recycled while 79% is incinerated.

As Common Dreams reported in January, scientists believe at the current rate of plastic #pollution buildup the weight of plastics in the world's oceans "could exceed the collective weight of all fish in the ocean."

The production, incineration, and disposal of plastics in landfills all produce greenhouse gas emissions and release toxic compounds.

The agreement reached on Wednesday recognized "the importance of promoting sustainable design of products and materials so that they can be reused, remanufactured, or recycled and therefore retained in the economy for as long as possible along with the resources they are made of, as well as minimizing the generation of waste, which can significantly contribute to sustainable production and consumption of plastics."

Our world is not perfect and there are many things that need changing. This month all 👀 are on UNEA5 (the Fifth session of the United Nations Environment Assembly) in Nairobi, Kenya, where governments are meeting to discuss a historic agreement to tackle global plastic pollution 🥤

From beaches in Southeast Asia to the remote Antarctic, plastic pollution is everywhere. It is even in the air we breathe and the food we eat. 

And because most plastic is made from oil and gas, and we keep making more, it is also impacting the climate and the health of so many communities. National governments and big brands are not doing enough. 

Now is the time to make history!

Ask world leaders to support a legally binding global 𝗣𝗹𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗰𝘀 𝗧𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁𝘆 that covers the entire life cycle of plastics, including extraction, production, transport, use, disposal and remediation ✍️📜

Imagine this. 

Carbonated drink companies are mandated to offer their product only in refills. (No more of plastic disposable bottles.)

Consumers who regularly drink that product - would they stop drinking? 

In fact another ecosystem of products & services may stem from that change to convenience people. 

And while it may mean more pennies for, say a coke, given the spending capacity of that audience base, would they mind a few pennies extra for the environment? 

It's a win win for everyone.

Thoughts?

As children, many among us dreamed of getting a message in a bottle -- a piece of the unknown from some far off land or vessel. We now know that the true message was never in the bottle, it was the bottle, and we’re all receiving its dire warning. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Virtually no stretch or depth of the ocean seems to go untouched by harmful plastics. A piece of debris that finds its way to a river will often travel thousands of miles before reaching a foreign shore, or one of the five massive, floating garbage patches that live in the middle of the world’s oceans. Take, for example, Henderson Island, part of the Pitcairn Islands in the Pacific Ocean. Henderson Island is an uninhabited atoll over 3,100 miles (5,000km) from the nearest population center, yet it has collected nearly 38 million pieces of plastic debris.⁠⁠

What is produced and wasted in one area of the world has profound and deadly implications for another.

Sage advice by the legendary Dr. Jane Goodall on World Environment Day 🌏

“People say think globally, act locally. Well, if you think globally, it is overwhelming and you do not have enough energy left to act locally. Just act locally and see what a difference you can make. We are constantly told to buy more, buy, buy, buy! But do we really need it? It starts with trying to live a more sustainable life in the small decisions we make every day.”janegoodallinst

#HISTORICVICTORY! ✊🏾✊🏼✊🏽✊🏻✊🏿

We interrupt your scrolling to bring you some #goodnews 💚

Today at the United Nations Environment Assembly #UNEA5 taking in Nairobi, Kenya, governments adopted a resolution officially opening negotiations for a global plastics treaty. 🎉

This is a clear acknowledgment that the entire lifecycle of #plastic, from #fossilfuel extraction to disposal, creates #pollution that is harmful to people and the planet. This is a big step that will keep the pressure on fossil fuel companies and big brands to reduce their plastic footprint and switch their business models to refill and reuse.

This powerful resolution ensures legally binding commitments from governments to hold them accountable and turn off the tap on plastic pollution.

⚠️ 𝐍𝐨𝐰 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐥𝐲 𝐛𝐞𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐬 ⚠️

Until a strong global treaty is signed, sealed, and delivered, greenpeace and its allies will keep pushing for a world free of plastic pollution, with clean air and a stable climate.

Join the millions of people around the world who are demanding an end to the plastic pollution crisis. Ask world leaders to support a strong global #PlasticsTreaty

Yesterday, justinpjtrudeau announced that the federal government will support "the development of a new, ambitious, and legally binding global agreement on plastics at the United Nations Environment Assembly that takes a full lifecycle approach to addressing plastic pollution." 

This is good news, and we hope the government will follow through on this pledge and help create a Treaty that stops plastic pollution at the source by ❌ not producing unnecessary plastic in the first place! ❌ 

We urgently need the federal government to take bold action internationally and here at home to tackle the plastic, biodiversity and climate crises, which are interconnected and escalating. 

It’s time to call on global governments to work towards real solutions to the plastic crisis like a #reuserevolution

What seemed undoable only a few years ago, has now been done. After days of spirited negotiations behind closed doors, the delegates at the U.N. Environment Assembly in Nairobi, who hailed from nearly 200 countries, emerged with a thrilling proclamation: They would heed the call of scientists, citizens, and environmental organizations around the world and establish a global plastics treaty that will: ⁠
⁠
1. Be legally binding⁠
2. Address the full life cycle of plastics, from production to end pollution⁠
3. Center on the frontline communities that suffer the most from the crisis⁠
⁠
The three provisions will set the stage for historic global cooperation and enable the world to meaningfully tackle the crush of plastic production and pollution threatening the natural world. ⁠
⁠
The victory is also an instructive lesson on the power of collective action. Together with the incredible partner organizations in the Break Free From Plastics coalition, we were able to rally over one million petition signatures to call for these measures, giving leaders a pivotal final push ahead of the end of negotiations. Our voices, when used in concert, have immense power to shape the world we wish to live in. ⁠

From the depths of the Mariana Trench to the fields of ice in the arctic circle, plastic can now be found in every square mile of the ocean. Without meaningful action, this problem will only get worse — plastic production is projected to triple by 2050. But we are not powerless.⁠
