End Plastic Pollution

Earth Day Network is changing human attitudes about and behavior toward  plastics and reducing plastic pollution. The End Plastic Pollution campaign helps people understand the impacts of plastic pollution on human and ecosystem health and how everyday actions can lessen the problem. 

The campaign draws attention to the harmful effects of plastic in our environment — harming  marine and human health, littering beaches and landscapes, clogging waste streams and landfills — and empowers people to make a difference.  

Increasing awareness is the first step toward making more informed decisions in our lives. Through toolkits, calculators and other resources, Earth Day Network provides instruction on how to cut plastic use and create a healthier world. 

Unfortunately, single-use plastics are so prevalent that trying to avoid them can seem hopeless. That’s why the campaign also focuses on systematic problems of plastic use, including the large-scale sources of plastic.

Act on Plastic Pollution

End Plastic Pollution informs policymakers, provides press availability and contributes to the international discussion on plastic pollution and its causes, including pushing for national legislation and corporate commitments. Earth Day Network also engages with and informs a global network of NGOs, grassroots organizations, campus youth, mayors and other local elected leaders, faith leaders, artists and athletes, and students and teachers. 

We support events in all continents of the world, building a global following and activating citizens to join our End Plastic Pollution advocacy campaigns. 

The End Plastic Pollution campaign elevates the issue of plastic pollution in the global agenda and demands effective action to reduce and control it.
