Environmental advocates are in Washington, D.C. for the second annual Week of Action in support of strong federal legislation to protect communities and the planet from dangerous single-use plastics.
Plastic isn’t recyclable. But corporations don’t want you to know that. Their actions mask the true harm plastics have on our health and environment.

As delegates prepare for the second session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee to develop a Global Plastics Treaty, Just Zero denounces the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) for allowing the fossil fuel industry to undermine the treaty negotiations process.
Just Zero’s new report exposes misinformation spread by the fossil fuel industry about advanced recycling, chemical recycling, and other toxic and climate-damaging technologies that melt, boil, and burn plastic waste.
