Demand a Strong Global Plastics Treaty to Protect Our Ocean

In March 2022, leaders and representatives from 175 countries endorsed a historic resolution at the United Nations Environment Assembly to end plastic pollution through a Global Plastics Treaty by the end of 2024.

Unfortunately, the United States – which leads the world in creating plastic waste – is failing to step up. Unlike commitments made by the “High Ambition Coalition” countries, the U.S. proposal lacks the kind of strong, binding measures required to succeed.

This is unacceptable.

With the leadership of our colleagues at Surfrider Foundation Europe and the anticipated support of our network of global affiliates, we are demanding more. Specifically, we are calling on the Biden Administration to agree to binding measures to reduce single-use plastic production, including holding producers responsible for phasing out plastic production and ending single-use plastics.
