One of those chemicals on the train that derailed and caught fire last month in Ohio? Polyethylene, the most widely used form of plastic in the world. It’s just one more reason to continue moving our communities and institutions beyond plastic — so that we can help curb pollution and prevent toxic disasters.

Together, we’ve built major momentum for cutting out wasteful products from our everyday lives. Our advocacy has helped reduce waste from plastic bags, bottles and polystyrene foam, and develop a groundswell of support for policies that make plastic producers financially responsible for dealing with the waste their products are designed to become.
