Fund Raiser for MPP

Art by Janak Narayan

MMP's three main working groups are: Legislation, Public Awareness/Education, and Research. We place an emphasis on acting locally to support and promote the efforts of many partnering organizations and businesses. MPP supports the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act which supports extended producer responsibility. It is important to network with companies who use alternatives to plastic packing and products. It is more important to move away from a disposable, consumption base economy to a regenerative, circular economy by encouraging the passing of new legislation that supports infrastructure, design, and funding for products that can be reused, repaired, and recycled. We focus on issues for creating social and environmental justice. We give people and groups a forum to join together to make connections and build a community to address the Single Use Plastic (SUP) crisis.
