Our world is choking on throwaway plastic. From our parks, to our waterways and all corners of our oceans, the devastating impacts of plastic are mounting. Scientists have even found microplastics in the air we breathe and the food we eat.
Despite our best efforts to avoid it, every day we are confronted with plastic packaging. We’re told recycling is the solution — but in Canada, only 9% of plastic is recycled. We’re urged to clean up plastic pollution in our communities — but the trash just keeps on coming. And because most plastic is made from fracked gas and oil, it is also impacting the climate. To truly tackle this crisis globally, we need to solve the problem at its source.
It's time we demand that massive consumer goods companies like Coca-Cola, Nestlé, PepsiCo, Unilever and Mondelez reject unnecessary throwaway plastics and take responsibility for the plastic pollution crisis they’ve helped create.
Add your name to demand these companies embrace a green and just future by investing in reusable systems.
