Reducing Plastic for the Planet
no2plastic is a worldwide community of people, businesses and organizations dedicated to reducing single-use plastics to benefit planet health and human health. Reducing Plastic for the Planet is our mission.
Just as ocean animals swim unnoticed under the surface, so has our stream of waste in the United States been invisible for decades. We have shipped the majority of our single-use plastics to China and other countries. We have made our waste other nations problems. But plastic is coming back home.
Plastic has reached the deepest trenches of our oceans, plastic is in the water we drink, it is in the food we eat and it is in the sand where we play. Chances are plastic is in your body. Plastic threatens wildlife, water sources and diminishes the beauty of our landscapes. And plastic has a half life measured in hundreds even thousands of years. While certain plastics have value, single-use plastics have become a global epidemic. It is time to take Action!
no2plastic believes that change comes through collaboration and community building. We are a diverse network of educators, students, athletes, artists, entrepreneurs, kids, seniors, scientists, celebrities, activists, and innovators. Our partners and members share our mission and strive for change. We believe that if enough of us say “no” to single-use plastics that we, as Conscientious Consumers, will have the power to drive demand for innovative designs.
Many of these designs are offered in the no2plastic store where you will find a selection of goods empowering and inspiring people to substitute disposable single-use items with reusable ones.
The plastic story is ongoing and we believe that the best way to connect with people is through visual arts. no2plastic funds award winning photographers and artists to visually tell the story of our planets beauty and its struggle with plastic pollution. We hope you will join us.
