Preventing Plastic Pollution

We all want litter free communities and clean waterbodies for healthy wildlife. To achieve this goal, we must tackle the problem of single-use, throwaway plastics.

NY/NJ Baykeeper’s Plastics Pollution Reduction Campaign consists of a three-pronged approach of education, advocacy, and research. We’re working on urging the public to change consumer habits, advocating for legislation that will reduce and prevent plastic from entering our waterways, and researching the impact plastic has on our waterways and wildlife.
