TOWARDS A TREATY TO END PLASTIC POLLUTION: WWFs CALL TO URGENTLY REGULATE HIGH-RISK PLASTIC PRODUCTS
FROM POLLUTION TO SOLUTION
Plastic is suffocating our rivers and oceans, killing species and contaminating our food, air and water. And the problem is only getting worse. Plastic pollution is a global problem that requires a global solution. Plastic leaking into our environment in one location can end up hundreds or even thousands of kilometres away. Regulation and voluntary measures at a national level have proven ineffective in stopping plastic from polluting and poisoning our planet. This is why a unified global response is essential to ending the plastic crisis. To put an end to the plastic crisis, the treaty must introduce comprehensive, binding rules across the plastic life cycle to ban the most damaging plastics, reduce production and consumption, promote reuse and recycling, and properly manage plastic waste.
