The Problem

Every year, millions of tonnes of plastic waste enters our oceans, entangling and killing marine creatures like whales and sea turtles that mistake it for food, and breaking apart into harmful microplastics that cannot be cleaned up. Plastic pollution destroys communities and has already entered our food, our water and even our bodies.

Recent cleanups and brand audits in 42 countries found Nestlé to be one of the top brands responsible for the single-use plastic pollution that is devastating our rivers, oceans, waterways and communities around the world.

And despite saying they are taking the crisis seriously, Nestlé, the world's largest food and beverage company, actually increased its use of plastic packaging by 13% last year.

The Solution

Nestlé has recently begun to admit they are part of the problem. But Nestlé still has no meaningful plan to reduce their overall production of plastic packaging.

The only way to solve the plastic pollution is for corporations like Nestlé to be transparent about their plastic footprint, commit to peak production of plastic, and establish targets for reduction of the total amount of single-use packaging units.

We need Nestlé to move to truly sustainable packaging solutions that focus on refill and reuse—on a scale big enough to solve this crisis, not just to get them some positive PR.

We need you to join us and tell Nestlé to stop harming our planet with destructive and unnecessary single-use plastic before it is too late!
