Plastic waste is choking our planet – polluting the air, water, and soil both people and wildlife need to survive. And as this crisis spreads to every corner of the globe, WWF is leading the charge to help reimagine how we source, design, dispose of, and reuse the plastic materials communities most depend upon. Because while plastic can help make our hospitals safer, our food last longer, and our packages more efficient to ship, it has no place in nature.
Every day plastic is flowing into our natural environment at an unprecedented rate – a dump truck every minute into our oceans alone. It’s time to turn off the tap. Together. WWF is uniting our global networks of industry leaders, consumers, and policymakers to transform our systems, so the plastics we discard become plastics we use again.
As everyday people continue doing their part to reduce, reuse, and recycle, WWF is engaging policymakers to ensure the plastics leaving recycling bins stay in effective waste management systems, and out of the hands of illegal plastic traffickers.
Through our ReSource:Plastic
activation hub, we’re helping some of the world’s leading companies translate ambitious plastic commitments into measurable change – both across their business operations, and well beyond their supply chains. We’re working on the ground with local partners from Indonesia to Peru to keep plastic out of our planet’s most extraordinary ecosystems. And in oceans the world over we’re supporting communities and fishing crews, big and small, to improve gear use and recovery, so issues like abandoned nets no longer pose one of the biggest threats to marine life.
WWF is fighting for a world with no plastic in nature. It’s a world where our oceans teem with marine life, not discarded nets, bottles, and bags. Where no human breathes the toxic fumes of burning plastic. And where every indispensable plastic product is used to make another.
It’s a world where people and nature thrive together. Join us.
