Stop plastic pollution at the source

Plastic pollution is jeopardizing human health and harming marine animals like whales and sea turtles at alarming rates. This problem began in the boardrooms of the top multinational companies when they decided to dump products packaged in single-use, non-recyclable plastic in places where there is no infrastructure to manage them. We cannot recycle our way out of this crisis. Over 90% of plastics have not been recycled. Countries in Southeast Asia are used as dumping ground through the global waste trade. We have to hold brands accountable and demand alternatives to cheap throwaway plastic packaging. The great news is, more than 3 million people around the world have joined Greenpeace to urge companies to stop polluting our planet with throwaway plastic. And it’s working. Because of mounting pressure from people like you, corporations are finally starting to admit that they are part of the problem, and they are talking about solutions. But we don’t need more talking—we need concrete, urgent action to stop plastic pollution at the source!

Other ways to take action

Every year, millions of tonnes of plastic waste enters our oceans, entangling and killing marine creatures like whales and sea turtles that mistake it for food, and breaking apart into harmful microplastics that cannot be cleaned up. Plastic pollution destroys communities and has already entered our food, our water and even our bodies. It is time for corporations like Nestle, Unilever, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo., Colgate, Danone, Johnson & Johnson, and Mars to invest in alternative ways to deliver their products to us and to stop using single-use plastic!

What’s the real cause of plastic pollution? Out-of-control production of throwaway plastic by the world’s biggest brands. In fact, they’ve created a Plastic Monster of epic proportions. Join the global movement to expose the menace caused by single-use plastic and packaging. Together, let’s pressure these companies to take concrete, urgent action to slay their Plastic Monster once and for all.

There are so many ways you can take action to help stop plastic pollution at the source! Check out Greenpeace’s Million Acts of Blue toolkit for a plastic-free future.
