Action 3 – Pass the Federal Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act!

Background: 91% of plastic is never recycled. More than 350 million metric tons of plastic are produced each year. The United States generates more plastic waste than any country in the world.

The Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act of 2021 (BFFPPA) builds on successful statewide laws across the U.S. and outlines practical plastic reduction strategies to realize a healthier, more sustainable, and more equitable future. The federal bill, which is sponsored by Sen. Jeff Merkley (OR) and Rep. Alan Lowenthal (CA), represents the most comprehensive set of policy solutions to the plastic pollution crisis ever introduced in Congress. 

Step 1: Contact your US government elected officials and urge them to support the Federal Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act: https://secured.surfrider.org/action/engagement?actionId=AR0033570&id=701i00000018YoU 

Step 2: Share the image below on Twitter with this text:
