An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Oppose legislation to classify plastic incinerators as "advanced recycling."

Legislation supported by the American Chemistry Council to classify plastic incinerators as "advanced recycling" would allow these facilities to circumvent the Clean Air Act laws meant to control the pollution they pump out. Air pollution from plastic incinerators can cause serious health issues ranging from asthma to cancer. It's just trading one harmful form of pollution for another -- while the real solution to our country's out-of-control plastic waste crisis is to reduce the amount of wasteful, unnecessary single-use plastics that get produced in the first place. We should be moving beyond plastic, not burning it and polluting our air. I urge you to oppose legislation that would deregulate this harmful, senseless practice.
