In many ways, plastic has transformed our lives for the better – making things more affordable, more accessible and more convenient. However, our exploding use of plastic, particularly single-use plastic, has also created an enormous plastic pollution problem that is inflicting harm on people and our planet in unprecedented ways.
TEAR has created this short video to highlight how the problem of plastic pollution is harming people in our world’s poorest communities and – most importantly - what we can do to turn things around.
We’d love you to watch this video and help spread the word by sharing it with your social media networks.

Join us in calling on Coca-Cola, Nestlé, PepsiCo and Unilever to take responsibility for their plastic waste in poorer countries.Sign now
