World Leaders: End Plastic Pollution

To all world governments, members of the United Nations:

As citizens from around the world, we are calling for an urgent international treaty to end plastic pollution. This new legally-binding treaty must set the most ambitious targets to end this planetary crisis – addressing the whole lifecycle of plastics, from reducing production, to design and waste management. This is our chance to transition to a safe circular economy that protects people, wildlife, and our climate – in a just and inclusive way.

World Leaders: End Plastic Pollution

We’ve seen it choking life in the deepest oceans and on the highest mountains. Now, shocking studies are finding plastic pollution everywhere: in the rain, our food, our drinking water, even in the human placenta! It’s poisoning us, and life on Earth.

But finally we have a unique opportunity to change this.

Right now, the United Nations is considering a new ambitious global treaty to end plastic pollution. If countries agree to it, we have a real chance of cleaning up our planet! But big polluters are already trying to water down the proposal.

It’s up to all of us to show them that the whole world supports the strongest possible treaty to end the plastic crisis! Governments are meeting this week add your name on this petition, and forward it to everyone you can.


In collaboration with the #BreakFreeFromPlastic movement.
