Tell General Mills to reduce its plastic food packaging

Re: Sustainability and Plastic Packaging

We urge General Mills to reduce its plastic food packaging. All that packaging is contributing to overwhelming amounts of plastic littering our rivers and oceans, where it is choking sea turtles, birds and other wildlife.

Using less plastic across General Mills’ brands and products will help lighten the load of plastic that everyday consumers are forced to deal with.

While it’s a good start to aspire to all recyclable or reusable packaging by 2030, General Mills should also work to reduce its absolute plastic packaging use. Only 5% of plastics in the U.S. are actually recycled. The company should focus on reducing plastic first.
