Plastic Pollution Coalition is a global alliance of more than 500 organizations, businesses, and notable leaders working toward a world free of plastic pollution and its toxic impacts on humans, animals, oceans, waterways, and the environment.




We envision a world free of plastic pollution, where:

  • Individuals and systems embody zero-waste values of reusability and durability so plastic pollution is reduced at the source: in use & production.
  • Packaging and goods are intentionally designed to be useful throughout their existence. Industry actively takes extended responsibility for all products and packaging throughout their lifetime.
  • Governments, industry, and organizations work together to eliminate the concept of "waste" by designing an ongoing use and positive outcome for every product and byproduct. 
  • Humans, animals, and bodies of water thrive within the global ecosystem.


Plastic Pollution Coalition includes member organizations and businesses from over 60 countries on 6 continents, in addition to tens of thousands of individuals worldwide. Our collective reach, together with the influence of our notable coalition members, continues to bring the vision of a world free of plastic pollution to hundreds of millions of people across the globe.



PPC's member organizations collaborate in dedicated Working Groups to set measurable goals and outcomes around specific elements of the plastic pollution problem: Plastic Straws, Polystyrene, Legislation & Policy, and Organizing for Social Change. Coalition members work together to produce best practices guidance, to strategize around each issue, and to support ongoing efforts of each other and outside groups in local communities worldwide.
