From beaches in Southeast Asia to the remote Antarctic, plastic pollution is everywhere, harming animals like turtles and seabirds and affecting human health. Scientists have even found microplastics in the air we breathe and the food we eat.1 And because most plastic is made from fracked gas and oil, it is also impacting the climate. To truly tackle this crisis globally, we call on companies and world leaders to step up and drive change.
It’s time to demand that massive consumer goods companies like Coca-Cola, Nestlé, PepsiCo, and Unilever reject unnecessary throwaway plastics and commit to making 25% of their packaging reusable or refillable by 2030. There is no human health without planetary health, and these companies must embrace a green and just future that keeps public health and workers’ rights at their core.
