Each year, a whopping 70 million pounds of waste is left behind in our country’s parks for the National Park Service to manage, and single-use plastics are a big part of that problem. Almost two-thirds of all the plastic ever created is no longer in use, instead sitting in landfills or polluting the natural environment.

It’s time to protect the special natural places that we love, both for our own enjoyment and for the sake of the amazing animals that inhabit them. Will you stand with us and support a ban on single-use plastics in national parks?
