Stop Plastic Pollution!
About Trash Mob
"Return to Offender!"
Why we’re mobbing:
We are tired of being told as citizens that we should be responsible for trying to recycle all the TRASH that manufacturers use to package most everything we buy. We would like to remind manufacturers that tell us their items are “recyclable” when they are NOT, that they need to take responsibility for disposing of it. In the spirit of Flash Mob, we mob them with their packaging!
Trash Mob is the last part of Break Free From Plastic's Brand Audit Process, scroll to "Return the Trash to the Polluter."
We LOVE to collaborate! These are our partners:
The Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act of 2021 (BFFPPA) is the most comprehensive set of policy solutions to the plastic pollution crisis ever proposed in Congress!
Among other things, it includes comprehensive Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) measures, to save local and municipal governments billions of dollars by shifting the cost of waste management to producers, ensuring their commitment to, and designing for better recyclability.
Find out why this Act is important and what you can do here, and tell your representatives in Congress to support this Act!
We are part of the BFFP movement!
Trash Mob is part of a growing movement to "Return the trash to the Polluter," another take on EPR! Come and join us - we are the Changemakers!
Audit, Mob and Advocate!
During May - September, BFFP does a global brand audit. The media campaign that follows exposes the top plastic polluters. Send-back programs and advocating legislation are needed for greatest impact.
