Beyond plastic

Tell your federal lawmakers: Don’t give plastic incineration a free pass

Burning plastic is being proposed as a cheap silver bullet to our country’s out-of-control plastic waste problem in order to give companies a green light to continue business as usual and produce endless amounts of plastic.

But the real solution is to stop plastic pollution at the source by reducing the amount of single-use plastics that get produced in the first place.

Tell Congress: Burning plastic and polluting our air shouldn’t count as “recycling.”
