The Zero Waste Campaign by One Step Closer (OSC) is working to inspire companies and consumers to reduce and eliminate single use plastics from products, packaging, and personal lives.
The campaign features an action platform where industry leaders and consumers can come together to combat plastic waste. “We all have a role to play when it comes to sustainable packaging,” Alyssa Harding, OSC’s Packaging Collaborative Director, tells Food Tank. “The campaign is designed to help us know our power and influence.”
The campaign also calls on companies and consumers to take action through its policy platform. The platform, offered through the American Sustainable Business Network, highlights policies that improve infrastructure, labeling, and extended producer responsibility within the packaging industry. Featured policies include the Break Free From Plastic Act and the Compost Act.
