Goal: $30,000

The United States is the world’s largest plastic polluter: Every year, we produce a staggering 35 million tons of plastic waste.

PIRG is working to fix that — and we need your help.

We’re doubling down on our campaigns to move Connecticut beyond plastic, and we’re making progress. Thanks to years of our advocacy and organizing, one in three Americans now live in a state with a ban on at least one form of single-use plastic.

But we still have so much more work to do, and we can’t do it alone.

That’s why we’ve set a goal of raising $30,000. Make your special, one-time gift in honor of Earth Day and help put our planet over plastic.
