A Polluting Material

From start to finish, plastic pollutes our air, water, land, and bodies. Plastic is made using dirty fossil fuels, and once created it never goes away. We only use most plastic products once. It’s time to get single-use plastic out of New England.

CLF in Action

We can’t recycle our way out of our plastic problem. Big Plastic wants you to think it’s your fault that recycling doesn’t work. It isn’t. Corporate giants actually make money propping up our failing recycling system, while pumping more single-use, unrecyclable products into our communities.

CLF knows we need to think bigger and act faster to break the polluting plastic cycle. We’re pushing for single-use plastic bag bans in every state in New England, and that’s just the beginning. We’re dedicated to creating a more effective recycling system — and making the plastic producers pay their fair share to recycle and reuse their polluting products.
