Beyond Plastic

NCPIRG calls on Raleigh to move beyond plastics

Plastic waste has reached a crisis level in our state. Nothing we use for just a few minutes should spend hundreds of years polluting our environment, harming our wildlife, clogging our landfills, and threatening our health. That’s why our team at NCPIRG teamed up with local advocates at last night’s Raleigh City Council meeting to call for local action to reduce plastic waste.  

At the meeting, we highlighted the ways in which plastic pollution is affecting Raleigh residents and highlighted two key pathways that city council can take to help Raleigh lead the way in our state’s fight against plastic pollution. 

Raleigh residents can take action to support the city reducing plastic waste by signing NCPIRG’s petition here.
