No Plastic Please is a campaign of Humane Action Pittsburgh that works on three levels: INDIVIDUAL, ORGANIZATIONAL, & LEGISLATIVE
For individuals, we provide education, motivation, and resources to help avoid the deluge of single-use plastic that is offered to each of us every single day. For organizations, including businesses, schools, or community groups, we provide education and form partnerships to support these entities in moving forward with reducing their single-use plastic waste. On legislation, we speak directly with policymakers to elevate the issue of unchecked single-use plastic waste and we work with our network of engaged citizens to support smart legislative actions.
All eight of these single-use plastic items are constantly offered to us in cafes, restaurants, shops, schools, offices, etc. Some have even found their way into daily use inside our homes.
They are also some of the most common items found littering our communities and floating in our waterways
Each of these eight instances of single-use plastic can be replaced by readily available reusable alternatives. All it takes is a commitment to change and a little preparation.
Big changes can come from many small actions.
