From the beaches of Southeast Asia to the remote Antarctic, plastic pollution is everywhere. It starts polluting the moment it's created, impacting our oceans, our climate and the health of our communities.  Microplastics pollution has now even been found in the air we breathe and the food we eat.  We need a solution that matches the scale of the problem.
A global treaty on plastics is that solution. We are one step closer in the UN process to achieving it.  Negotiations will start later this year, with the goal of completing the process by the end of 2024.
A strong global plastics treaty requires a holistic approach to ending the plastic pollution crisis, by:
- Capping and phasing down plastic production, as well as phasing out virgin plastic production;
- Ending plastic pollution across the whole life-cycle to protect the environment and human health;
- Centering justice in treaty proceedings and outcomes, and prioritizing the needs of impacted communities;
- Accelerating a just and inclusive transition to a low-carbon, zero-waste, toxic-free, reuse-based economy.
Greenpeace and our allies are pushing for a treaty that centres reduction, reuse and justice — not false solutions and business as usual.
Help us make this a reality. Ask Justin Trudeau and other world leaders to support a strong global plastics treaty!
