Plastic is a substance the Earth cannot digest

Plastic Pollution Coalition is a global alliance of individuals, organizations, businesses and policymakers working toward a world free of plastic pollution and its toxic impact on humans, animals, the ocean and the environment.

The Plastic Pollution Coalition mission is to stop plastic pollution and its toxic impact on humans, animals, the ocean and the environment. PPC was founded in 2009 as a platform to amplify a common message through strategic planning and communication. Our more than 400 member organizations and a growing coalition of individuals seek to increase awareness and understanding of the plastic pollution problem, and to find sustainable solutions. We aim to empower more people and more organizations to take action to stop plastic pollution and to live plastic-free.

 PPC has two core initiatives that represent the foundation of its work:

Educate and inform
Elevate the discourse about plastic pollution to the forefront of public attention; deliver access to information about all aspects of plastic pollution and their interconnections;

Connect globally
Connect all involved parties—individuals, local communities, environmental, public health and environmental justice organizations, businesses and policy-makers—in their work to end plastic pollution.
