In 2009 when Plastic Pollution Coalition was founded, few people understood the toxic impacts of plastic pollution on humans and the environment. It has been incredible to see the tremendous growth of PPC, growing from an initial 25 groups to a broad coalition of over 1,200 business and organization Coalition members. PPC has been at the forefront of an incredible sea change of awareness and activism surrounding the issue of plastic pollution. Dianna and the PPC’s work in pushing to stem plastic’s flow into our waterways, oceans, and environment, as well as their efforts to address the climate and health impacts of single-use plastic packaging are invaluable.
Flipping the Script on Plastic’s Place in Our World
Plastic Pollution Coalition’s list of A-List supporters includes Jeff Bridges, Jackson Browne, Fran Drescher, Ben Harper, Diana Nyad, Alice Waters, and Alfre Woodard – to name a few. When these notables speak out, millions of people wake up to the plastic pollution crisis.
In 2022, the Coalition will be working with leaders within the entertainment industry to encourage the storylines of popular films and television to include messaging that moves the nation and the world away from single-use plastics towards reusables and refillables, and a plastic-free, more just, equitable, and regenerative future.
The coalition seeks $100,000 to expand this campaign. And, for larger donors, Co-FounderJulia Cohen says there are opportunities to dramatically expand the organization’s lean $2 million budget.
“Imagine what we could do with double that,” she says.
