Tell President Biden: Cut down on the government's plastic consumption
Our world's plastic pollution problem is endangering wildlife and the environment around us.
Every year, roughly 8 million tons of plastic waste enter our oceans -- the equivalent of dumping five garbage bags of trash on every foot of the world's coastlines annually. The best thing we can do to fight the flood of plastic polluting our environment is to stop using so much of it.
That's why I'm writing to urge the General Services Administration to reduce the amount of single-use plastics purchased by the federal government.
