WWF and leading organizations urge President Biden to act on reducing plastic waste

WWF joined several NGOs and foundations, including The Recycling Partnership, Monterey Bay Aquarium, The Ocean Foundation, Ellen MacArthur Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts, to issue a letter to President Biden calling for him to direct a whole-of-government approach at the federal level to advance ambitious solutions to plastic pollution, both in the US and internationally. These leading organizations urged the president to take action that establishes a national goal and targets to reduce plastic pollution; develops national frameworks to advance the transition to a circular economy; improves waste management infrastructure; prioritizes the health of people, communities, and ecosystems; and supports strong international cooperation.
