Wildlife Over Waste

To spare birds, fish and other wildlife from the harm caused by plastic pollution, we’re urging states, major corporations and plastic producers to to reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in our environment.

Too often, marine life mistake plastic as food and starve as a result.

Every day, people throw away millions of pieces of single-use plastic “stuff” — and too much of it ends up polluting our environment. By design, plastic takes hundreds of years to fully degrade — which means every piece of plastic ever produced is still out there, sitting in landfills or floating in the ocean, waiting to be mistaken as a deadly piece of food by a bird, turtle or whale.  

Nothing we use for a few minutes should be allowed to pollute our oceans and rivers for hundreds of years. That’s why we’re calling for a statewide ban on single-use plastics across the country. But we aren’t stopping there. We are also calling on plastic producers to stop generating all of this single-use plastic we just don’t need.

Will you stand with our forests?

Our forests are invaluable. They’re chock full of centuries old trees, provide irreplaceable wildlife habitat and act as a natural climate solution. It’s up to us to save our forests from clear-cutting. This week make a Giving Tuesday gift to help protect our forests.
