Planet vs. Plastics: Global Theme for Earth Day 2024

Washington, D.C. (July 31, 2023)- EARTHDAY.ORG, the global organizer of Earth Day, has announced the global theme for Earth Day 2024: Planet vs. Plastics.

Planet vs. Plastics unites students, parents, businesses, governments, churches, unions, individuals, and NGOs in an unwavering commitment to call for the end of plastics for the sake of human and planetary health, demanding a 60% reduction in the production of plastics by 2040 and an ultimate goal of building a plastic-free future for generations to come. 

To achieve a 60% reduction by 2040, EARTHDAY.ORG’s goals are:

(1) promoting widespread public awareness of the damage done by plastic to human, animal, and all biodiversity’s health and demanding more research be conducted on its health implications, including the release of any and all information regarding its effects to the public

(2) rapidly phasing out all single use plastics by 2030 and achieving this phase out commitment in the United Nations Treaty on Plastic Pollution in 2024

(3) demanding policies ending the scourge of fast fashion and the vast amount of plastic it produces and uses

(4) investing in innovative technologies and materials to build a plastic-free world.
