Polluted by Single-Use Plastic


They will match every dollar you give today

As you know, Kevin, a group of donors have offered to match all Giving Tuesday gifts made to Greenpeace before midnight tonight, up to a total of $83,000. If you give $50, it could become $100. If you give $250, it could become $500.

Your gift on this Giving Tuesday could help us reach our $83,000 goal. And when we do, the $83,000 becomes $166,000!

    • That $166,000 will be used to push the CEOs of Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Nestle, Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Starbucks, and McDonald’s to stop producing single-use plastic packaging that often ends up in our oceans.
      • And did you know, Kevin, that the equivalent of one garbage truck of plastic enters the ocean every minute, every day, all year long. Corporations sell us products in plastic packaging that are meant to be used for minutes, but they last a lifetime or longer. If current trends continue, scientists estimate that by the year 2050 there could be more plastic in the ocean than fish!

  • It will be used to prevent Congress from handing over our lands and waters to oil companies for them to drill and spill on, with fewer protections for communities and wildlife.
  • It will be used to hold polluters like ExxonMobil accountable by exposing the colossal climate denial scheme to deliberately deceive the public — even though it knew the science and dangers of climate change for decades.
  • It will be used to spur action on climate change, and put our country back on the path toward solving the problem instead of making it worse.

Your Giving Tuesday gift will help us achieve all these goals and more. But it can only qualify for the match if we receive it before midnight tonight.

Thank you for giving to the oceans, the creatures that live in them, the people who rely on them, and to support all we do to protect the environment at Greenpeace.

Sincerely,

Kate Melges
Plastics Campaigner, Greenpeace USA
