Beyond plastic

Thank you for taking action to move beyond plastic. Will you donate today to amplify your impact?

By taking action today, you became part of a movement to cut back on the plastic waste that’s inundating our planet. We’ll deliver your petition signature to Amazon, along with thousands of others like it.

With the help of PIRG supporters like you, here’s how we’re already turning the tide on the plastic waste crisis:

  • After PIRG and our national coalition sent 137,000 petition signatures to Amazon, it announced plans to phase out padded plastic shipping envelopes in favor of recyclable alternatives.
  • One in three Americans now live in a state with a ban on at least one of the worst kinds of single-use plastics— including here in California, where we have bans on single-use plastic carryout bags and limitations on plastic straws.
  • We delivered over 80,000 petitions to Costco — and now the company has committed to initial steps to cut its plastic packaging waste.

But we need to do more if we’re going to move beyond plastic, and we’re up against intense opposition. Our work is fueled by grassroots support — we don’t take a penny from corporations.

Will you donate today to power more victories in the fight against plastic pollution?
