Resistbot Petition: Congress needs to take action on our plastic pollution crisis now!
An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Congress needs to take action on our plastic pollution crisis now!

375 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!

I’m extremely concerned about our plastic pollution crisis. It’s destroying our waterways, sickening humans and wildlife, and contributing to our climate crisis. While I’m heartened to see state legislatures like California’s passing bills to ban or reduce the use of single use plastics, federal action is necessary if we are to tackle this problem at the scale required. As such, I’d like you to cosponsor two really important bills: the first is H.R.7861 / S 1507- the Plastic Pellet Free Waters Act, which would require the EPA to create regulations within 60 days that prohibit the discharge of plastic pellets into waterways, storm drains or sewers from facilities that partake in the manufacture and transportation of nurdles. The second is HR 2238 / S 984 The Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act, which would set forth requirements and incentives to reduce the production of a variety of products and materials, including plastics, and increase efforts to collect, recycle, or compost products and materials. Doing nothing is not an option. We must take action now to rein in the scourge of plastic pollution. Our health—and the health of our planet—is at stake. Thanks.
