A Smarter Plan for Less Plastic Waste
The Alliance to End Plastic Waste is creating partnerships around the world and investing in solutions aimed at reducing plastic waste’s impact on our planet.
P&G is committed to creating products that have a minimal environmental footprint and make life easier for people to reduce, reuse and recycle. As a founding partner of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, P&G is doubling down on these sustainability efforts. With over 40 global companies working together, the Alliance is creating a strategy that will allow cities, businesses and people to work together to reduce plastic waste.
The Power of an Alliance
Plastics have had a big impact on the world we live in, helping to improve living standards, hygiene and nutrition and making many things more convenient than ever before. But the waste from these plastic materials has gotten out of control. Plastic waste doesn’t belong in our oceans — and it definitely can’t stay there.
That’s why the Alliance is working to create partnerships around the world. Last year, they announced a new partnership with the Grameen Creative Lab to support the development of Zero Plastic Waste Cities. This new project — launching in India and Vietnam — will enable meaningful, sustainable improvement in the protection of our environment and the quality of life for all those who live, work and play in Zero Plastic Waste Cities.
A Smarter Plan in Place = A Planet with Less Plastic Waste
The companies that form the Alliance are from all across the plastics value chain. They have committed to investing $1.5 billion over the next five years to develop and advance solutions to end plastic waste. The Alliance’s approach includes four main areas of focus: infrastructure development, innovation, education and engagement, and clean-up.
With a plan in place, the Alliance to End Plastic Waste mission to help eliminate plastic waste in our environment is becoming more of a reality every day.
