TELL CONGRESS TO SUPPORT THE FAREWELL TO FOAM ACT
Roughly 33 billion pounds of plastic enter the marine environment every year, creating a growing problem for our oceans and the animals that live there. Scientists have found plastic everywhere from the deepest part of the seas to the highest mountains and even in our own bodies.
Plastic foam, which is often used for cups, plates, and food containers as well as packaging, is one of the most common plastics found polluting our beaches and coasts. Plastic foam easily breaks up into smaller and smaller pieces, making it extremely difficult to clean up. Sea turtles, seabirds, and other ocean wildlife frequently mistake plastic foam for food.
The Farewell to Foam Act reduces plastic pollution at the source by prohibiting the sale and distribution of plastic food containers, packing peanuts, and single-use foam coolers.
Tell your members of Congress to support the Farewell to Foam Act and protect our oceans from harmful plastic pollution today.
This action emails your direct federal representatives and can only be completed by U.S. citizens with an address recognized by the database provided by Congress.
