We’re facing mountains of plastic pollution. 2 billion people have no safe way to dispose of rubbish, and it’s people in poverty who are suffering the worst impacts of this rubbish problem. They are forced to live and work among piles of waste, which is making them sick, releasing toxic fumes, flooding communities and causing up to a million deaths each year.
But Jesus told his followers that even the smallest amount of faith can move mountains.
So, we are asking you to put your faith into action and join us in demanding an end to plastic pollution. And we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do just that.
During 2023 and 2024, nearly 150 governments are meeting to develop the first-ever global treaty on plastic pollution. But it’s not a done deal. Please add your voice to demand an end to plastic pollution and its harmful impact on people living in poverty.
Poverty is not God’s plan. You are. Sign our petition today.
