The third round of UN Global Plastics Treaty negotiations are currently underway in Nairobi!

First, the good news: Thanks to the tireless work of activists like you, the policies being debated by delegates have the potential to be robust and impactful. Some of the most promising areas include options to progressively reduce plastic production, eliminate toxic chemicals, and phase out short-lived and avoidable plastics.

Now for the bad news: There are still a LOT of places in the treaty language with “either/or” options that include weak policies. 

In many cases, world leaders are still deciding whether or not the world’s biggest polluters will be held legally accountable for the waste they’ll produce — or whether they can continue to operate without real accountability. We can’t allow that to happen.

This is where you come in. We urgently need your help to put as much pressure as possible on the delegates attending these consequential negotiations. Can you join the more than 200,000 people who have added their names to our petition demanding a strong Global Plastics Treaty?
