Making Sustainable Change is a collaborative effort of America’s Plastic Makers® and partners seeking to end plastic waste.

Our goals

We've set a goal of making 100% of plastic packaging used in the U.S. reusable, recyclable or recoverable by 2030, and eliminating plastic packaging waste by 2040.

Empowering change

We’ll need dedication, education and investment in new recycling infrastructure. Because even one piece of waste in the environment is too much. By finding new ways to recycle plastic, reusing plastic again and again and leveraging plastic manufacturers' knowledge and drive to innovate, we can work toward a world free of plastic waste.

We'll do it together

Thanks to our partners’ in-depth knowledge and eagerness to collaborate, Making Sustainable Change is a force for positive change. Together, we are innovating and working toward a sustainable, responsible, more circular plastics industry that delivers solutions for our communities, America, and the world.
