Use your voice to put an end to single-use plastics

A new nationwide poll commissioned by Oceana has revealed that 81% of American voters support national, state, and local policies aiming to reduce single-use plastic. The Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act (S. 984 and H.R. 2238) would continue the momentum initiated by cities, counties, and states across America by phasing out unnecessary single-use plastic products; putting a moratorium on new and expanded plastic production facilities, which pollute low-income and minority communities; and holding companies accountable for their plastic waste.

We must seize this opportunity. The equivalent of roughly two garbage trucks full of plastic enters our oceans every minute. In addition to threatening marine life and entering our food, air, and water, plastic greatly contributes to climate change. In fact, plastic is set to outpace coal’s greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. With the United States responsible for generating more plastic waste than any other country, now is the time for the federal government to act.

Tell your members of Congress to support the Break Free From Plastic Act and protect our oceans from harmful plastic pollution
