Single-Use Plastic Emergency Response (S.U.P.E.R.) Hero Pledge
Single-use plastics and disposable plastics are some of the greatest sources of plastic pollution. Designed to be discarded, these objects offer a small convenience but remain forever. Follow the “4 Rs” of sustainable living: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
Just say NO to single-use and disposable plastics! For tips on easy alternatives visit our Get Started page.
Reduce waste: buy in bulk, choose products with the least packaging, look for products and packaging made from renewable resources, and avoid plastic packaging and containers. Choose products that have the least amount of disposable parts, like razors with replaceable blades and toothbrushes with replaceable brushes.
Reuse preferably nontoxic (glass, stainless steel) containers and goods to make less waste. Bad habits are disposable, containers are reusable.
Recycle what you can’t refuse, reduce or reuse. Recycling is a last option because it uses energy, and there may not be a market for the refabricated materials.
I will be a S.U.P.E.R. Hero!
