CAMPAIGN OF THE MONTH

Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act

The Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act of 2021 will tackle the exploding crisis of plastic pollution and transform waste and recycling management in the United States. More than 1,800 groups have endorsed the #BreakFreeFromPlastic Pollution Act as the most important set of policy solutions needed to tackle the plastic pollution crisis. Tell your representatives to support the bill today!

GET INVOLVED

You don’t need a big group of people or a lot of resources to take action. Here are some things you can start doing today:

...

Host a screening of The Story of Plastic documentary

The world has drastically changed because of COVID-19, and there’s no going “back to normal” even after it’s contained. The Story of Plastic’s message about the need for systems change and creating a more sustainable and equitable world is more important than ever. Host an online screening of this documentary and hold a discussion with your audience about its themes, what these mean to you, and what you can do about the problem.

...

Learn about the bigger picture

The plastic pollution problem is much more complex than the trash we see in our environment or the ones ingested by wildlife. With links to the climate emergency, environmental justice, overconsumption, and other pressing issues, the problem can only be addressed by viewing it through a systems lens. Browse our Resources to learn more.

...

Join the Plastic Free Campus Program

Schools and universities can join Break Free From Plastic’s global Plastic Free Campuses program. The program outlines concrete steps that students and administrators can take to address plastic waste on campus and educate the youth on the plastic pollution crisis.

...

Hold the top corporate plastic polluters accountable

Conduct brand audits along with cleanups to identify the corporations responsible for the unmanageable plastic waste in your community, school, or office. Then, hold them accountable by sending their plastic waste to their corporate offices or writing to them that while you want the product, you don’t want the plastic packaging that goes with it.

...

Push for local or national legislation

Write to your mayor or legislator to ask them to implement zero waste policies and systems. Circulate petitions in support of local or national legislation. You can find sample legislation and similar resources here.

...

Reduce consumption and plastic use

Say no to single-use plastic, bring your own reusable bags and containers, shop local and from zero waste/plastic-free establishments, repair items instead of buying new ones—there are so many ways to go plastic-free, conserve resources, and reduce waste as an individual, family, office, or school. Join the #WeChooseReuse revolution and demand a systems change!
