Beyond plastic

Donate to help keep plastic nurdles out of our waterways

Nurdles — the tiny plastic particles used to make plastic products like bags and bottles — are a huge problem for our waterways and the animals that live there.

We’re working to fix that — and we need your help.

We’re leading the charge to pass the Plastic Pellet Free Waters Act, and to move our country beyond plastic.

We know we can win: Thanks to years of PIRG’s advocacy and organizing, one in three Americans now live in a state with a ban on at least one form of single-use plastic.

Will you make a special-one time donation to help fuel our work?
