JOIN PLASTIC SMART CITIES

JOIN PLASTIC SMART CITIES AND LEAD THE GLOBAL CHARGE ON PLASTICS

 

Today an estimated 60% of plastic marine debris derives from urban centers, as polluted waterways carry plastic pollution to the ocean. While cities will rapidly increase their population densities to account for two-thirds of the global population by 2050, they must also continue to adopt smart solutions that reduce the collective impact of their prospering communities. On plastic, this means preventing, minimizing and managing plastic, both as a resource, and as a threat to your city's health and sustainable future.

Cities and Tourist Destinations can join the Plastic Smart Cities initiative by making the following commitments: 

  1. Sign a declaration of intent, committing to No Plastics in Nature by 2030;
  2. Develop an action plan within 6-months and launch a pilot within a designated area with a goal to reduce plastic pollution by 30% within two-years;
  3. Appoint an in-house staff member to the lead the initiative in your City or Tourist Destination; and
  4. Develop a monitoring plan that establishes baselines and annual targets, and share progress in your existing sustainability reporting.
