September 19, 2023

Dear Secretary Blinken, Chair Mallory, and Director Prabhakar,

"Thank you for your commitment to our common goal of ending plastic pollution to protect both the environment and human health. Numerous authoritative, peer-reviewed scientific reports and the United Nations Environment Assembly Resolution 5/14 have underscored the significant scientific consensus regarding the detrimental impact of plastic pollution on human health and the right to a healthy environment and reinforced the need for urgency in addressing plastic pollution. It is with that consensus and urgency in mind that we write to you today."
