The Plastic Atlas has the hard facts, data and figures to prove that the story of plastic that industry is telling us is a myth. We need urgent and drastic reductions in plastic production and consumption and regulation at the local, national and global level that tackle plastic pollution at the source. Solutions to the plastic crisis need to focus on preventing more plastic from entering the market and on implementing and supporting zero waste communities and cities, alternative delivery systems and reusable products.

Governments need to hold companies accountable that are currently contributing to and profiting from the plastic crisis. And citizens need to demand real action and solutions from their policy makers to keep our ecosystems and bodies free from plastics and their toxic additives.
