About this Event

As part of the Planet vs. Plastics campaign which unites students, parents, businesses, governments, churches, unions, individuals, and NGOs in an unwavering commitment to call for the end of plastics for the sake of human and planetary health, participants will be demanding a 60% reduction in the production of plastics by 2040 and an ultimate goal of building a plastic-free future.

To achieve a 60% reduction by 2040, EARTHDAY.ORG goals are: 1) Promoting widespread public awareness of the damage done by plastic to human, animal, and all biodiversity's health and demanding more research be conducted on its health implications, including the release by any and all information regarding its effects to the public; 2) Rapidly phasing out all single use plastics by 2030 and achieving this phase out commitment in the United Nations Treaty on Plastic Pollution in 2024; 3) Demanding policies ending the scourge of fast fashion and the vast amount of plastic it produces and uses; and 4) Investing in innovative technologies and materials to build a plastic-free world.

Currently, plastic production has grown to more than 380 million tons per year. At every stage of their life cycle, plastic pollutes and harms the communities it enters.

EARTHDAY.ORG demands the International Negotiating Committee on Plastic Pollution (INC) mandate the end of production of single-use plastic by 2030 in the Global Plastics Treaty.

Join Wellesley College EnAct, the BBOW Climate Coalition, and EARTHDAY.ORG as we demonstrate outside the Massachusetts State House demanding for a complete phase out of single-use plastic in Massachusetts, the U.S., and the world.
