Let’s make history - Global Plastics Treaty Now!


From beaches in Southeast Asia to the remote Antarctic, plastic pollution is everywhere. It starts polluting the moment it's created, impacting our oceans, climate and the health of our communities. Scientists have even found microplastics in the air we breathe and the food we eat. We need a solution that matches the scale of the problem.

A global treaty on plastics is that solution and we are one step closer in the UN process to seal it. Negotiations will start later this year, with the goal of completing the process by the end of 2024.

A strong global plastic treaty means ensuring a holistic approach to ending the plastic pollution crisis:

  • creating strong legally binding commitments to ensure compliance from governments and industry

  • Keeping oil and gas in the ground, and protecting our climate;

  • Big brands switching to refill and reuse systems and reducing single-use plastic pollution;

  • Holding countries accountable for managing their own waste and ending waste colonialism; and

  • Governments working to ensure a just transition for workers and the health of the most affected communities.

Already millions of people like you have come together to reject single use plastic and ask for change. Now Greenpeace and our allies call on governments and world leaders to start negotiating the terms for strong binding commitments, reuse over false solutions and center justice for frontline communities and workers.

Help us make this a reality. Ask world leaders to support a global plastics treaty!

Stop new logging plans

Lifting the ban would put at risk an area of rainforest the size of France, resulting in land grabs, social conflict and the exacerbation of the climate and biodiversity crises.
