Join us for a rally on the #BreakFreeFromPlastic Pollution Act!
Many of us were taught the three R’s—reduce, reuse, and recycle—and figured that as long as we got our plastic items into those blue bins, we could keep our plastic use in check and protect our planet. But the reality has become much more like the three B’s—plastic is buried, burned, or borne out to sea. The impacts on Americans’ health, particularly in communities of color and low-income communities, are serious.
Plastic pollution is a full blown environmental and health crisis, and it’s time that we pass this legislation to get it under control.
