THE PROBLEM

Plastic pollution is found in every corner of the globe —from the deepest ocean trenches to the remotest Arctic regions. Plastics persist in the environment for hundreds of years, eventually fragmenting into tiny pieces called microplastics. These plastic particles make their way into our food, our water, and even into us

The Solution

To protect wildlife, our environment, and our health, we need to stop plastic waste from piling up all around us. Governments must create laws aimed at reducing plastic waste. Businesses must commit to reducing and eliminating plastic packaging, and being responsible for the mess their plastic products create. And individuals can also help by Avoiding, Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling.
