TELL CONGRESS TO MAKE PLASTIC POLLUTERS PAY

Members of Congress have introduced a bill that would put a fee on plastic polluters, and we must seize this opportunity. Plastic is so prevalent in our environment that it’s not only killing marine life, it’s also affecting us personally; we’re eating, drinking, and breathing microplastics every day.

The REDUCE Act would set a per pound fee on the sale of new, or virgin, plastic used for single-use products. The bill would hold the plastic industry accountable for its pollution and help level the playing field between recycled plastic and new plastic. Change is needed and passing a plastic polluters fee is an important step to address this crisis.

Tell your members of Congress to make plastic polluters pay, which will ultimately reduce the production and use of single-use plastic that pollutes our oceans. Please feel free to edit the petition text below, then fill out your info on the right to submit your letter.
