Plastics can be a hassle – they create clutter and can be confusing to recycle – plus they contribute to litter, harm water and wildlife, and have largely unknown health impacts for us. Fortunately, there’s a lot we can do to help create a plastic-free world, from learning more about plastic waste and recycling to making simple swaps to advocating for changes in your community and sharing your story with others.

Be part of the solution by joining the Plastic-Free Challenge. Together, our actions can help protect water and wildlife, address climate change, improve our health, and create a plastic-free world.

Remember that developing low-waste habits is a gradual process. Start by browsing the actions within each category and select actions that make sense for you and your family. In this challenge, you can select up to five daily actions and five one-time actions.

While it can be discouraging, I will keep picking up trash after all I already clean up after a dog. Keep trying to buy less...
