Plastics 101

C3 Solutions, in its Plastics 101 policy paper, outlines how to tackle plastic pollution in the U.S. and abroad.

The C3 Take
  • Plastic is in almost everything we use and is essential for daily life.
  • Plastic pollution is damaging to the environment and economy.
  • We can make environmentally-friendly products and choices by empowering private sector innovation.

“While plastic itself is not inherently bad, the pollution that comes from it causes damage to the environment. However, calls for bans on all plastic are counterproductive. Market forces are making plastics cleaner and more efficient, and smart policies can reduce global, regional, and local waste.”
