Take Action

When citizens stand together, they have the power to change EU policy and achieve a future free from plastic pollution.

The Rethink Plastic alliance act as the EU policy arm of the Break Free From Plastic movement, fighting out the technical policy details at the European level. We recognise that without fundamental legislative change, we cannot ensure a future free from plastic pollution. 

Yet, to ensure success at the policy level, we need pressure from individuals and groups to remind decision makers that ambition is necessary, non-negotiable and for the benefit of people and planet. To support our call, here are some key ways you can take action today:
