Industry’s present trajectory has plastic production tripling by 2050. Moreover, around 90% of plastics ever produced have not been recycled. Corporations must drastically reduce their single-use plastic production and usage, and transition to plastic-free alternatives, eventually eliminating the need for single-use plastics.

According to the United Nations, around 36% of all plastic used globally goes into packaging, while around a third of all plastic packaging leaks in the environment. Reuse systems could cut plastic pollution by 30% by 2040. Complemented by a drastic reduction in production, a plastic-free future is possible if we make reuse a reality.


An effective treaty must prioritize protecting biodiversity, safeguarding the climate, and ensuring a just transition to a low-carbon, zero-waste, reuse-based economy. We demand a treaty that will keep oil and gas used to produce plastic in the ground and stop big polluters with their relentless plastic production.
