Toolkit: Plastic-Free Great Lakes

Researchers estimate that nearly 22 million pounds of plastic pollution enter the Great Lakes each year. Learn how you can make a difference in the fight against plastic pollution in the Great Lakes.

The Alliance for the Great Lakes works to protect the Great Lakes for today and tomorrow.

We involve tens of thousands of people each year in advocacy, volunteering, education, and research to ensure the lakes are healthy and safe for all.
