Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is a new Progressive Secretary letter.

This letter supports actions by the Friends of the Earth Action, Global Warming Coalition, Waterkeeper Alliance, and others. It asks Congress to address the problems that single-use plastics create for our environment and our food supply.

We will send your email-letter to your senators and your Congressperson

Please support S. 3263 / H.R.5845, the “Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act.”

Plastics often end up in our marine ecosystems. When exposed to sunlight and wave action, they break down into microplastics, which release toxins into the water. Those toxins — dioxins, pesticides, PCBs — enter our food supply, and we ultimately ingest them.

Plastics waste is a continuing problem. By 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans.

The “Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act” addresses some of these problems. It requires producers to take responsibility for their waste by financing recycling programs. It also bans certain non-recyclable plastics and prohibits shipment to developing countries.

Please support this essential legislation. Vote for the “Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act.”
