Break Free From Plastics

Items produced from single-use plastics contaminate our communities, food chain, and ecosystems. We are now faced with an environmental disaster because it chokes our rivers, fills our landfills, and pollutes our communities.

This trend on plastic pollution is a result of our culture of convenience and a throwaway mindset caused by consumerism.

To break free from plastics, individuals have to be mindful their consumption, corporations should adopt business models that reduce plastic production, and governments must enable and facilitate these models.

Understand the Issue

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.
