Feature real data and real stories from around the world.

Thanks to our global brand audits, we have five years worth of data from around the world revealing the worst corporate plastic polluters since 2018.

Most of the top polluting corporations have signed a voluntary Global Commitment to tackle their plastic footprint by 2025 yet in 2022, the annual progress report showed that they are nowhere close to meeting their 2025 promises. This proves that voluntary commitments are failing and the time for strong mandatory regulations is now.

We are making this data available so we can collectively continue to hold these corporations accountable for their plastic waste and false solutions.
