Turning the tide on plastic pollution requires the commitment of industry and consumers. Last month more than 275 brands, retailers, recyclers, governments and NGOs from around the world — collectively responsible for producing 20 percent of all plastic packaging — have pledged to eradicate plastic waste and pollution. Led by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in collaboration with U.N. Environment, the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment is a first-of-its-kind alliance ensuring that plastics never become waste but are 100 percent reusable, recyclable or compostable. Rethink, redesign, remake.
