When NYC Brings It, we can put an end to our single-use plastic problem. That’s why we need to bring our reusables wherever we go, so we’re doing whatever we can to clean up our city, and our planet, once and for all.
Bring It NYC.
THE PROBLEM: WHY WE BRING IT
We Bring It because our city, and our planet, has a pretty scary single-use plastic problem. NYC throws out more than half a million tons of plastic each year, less than half of which is recycled.
Put another way, that’s the combined weight of 11,730 subway cars’ worth of discarded plastic. Yikes.
THE SOLUTION: HOW WE BRING IT
When you bring your reusables wherever you go (bags, bottles and cutlery), you’re doing whatever you can to cut down on single-use plastic (SUP) waste. Because when we all Bring It, we make NYC cleaner, healthier and a place we’re proud to call home.
And local leaders are doing what they can as well. From New York’s statewide plastic bag ban that goes into effect March 2020, to NYC’s 2030 Zero Waste goal, they’re working with all kinds of partners to bring about all kinds of positive change.
THE IMPACT: WHAT WE BRING
When lots of individual New Yorkers Bring It, those numbers start to add up. If you carry a reusable bottle, for example, you can keep 167 plastic bottles out of our trash each year.
Now imagine if 8.6 million New Yorkers started bringing it too...
