Plastic Makers Take Action

As producers of products that find their way into the marine environment, plastic makers are working with government officials, retailers, anti-litter groups and consumers to devise solutions to prevent marine debris.

Plastic makers are:

  • Helping develop new and innovative recycling programs nationwide.
  • Promoting industry-wide practices to contain plastic pellets.
  • Partnering with governments and conservationists to encourage recycling and discourage litter.
  • Working to educate children on the link between litter and marine health.
  • Working with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to advance scientific understanding of marine debris.
  • Continuing to innovate and develop smaller, lighter packaging.

Taken together, these actions reflect a Reduce-Reuse-Recycle philosophy to managing waste and conserving resources.
