Abstract: In recent years, the environment and development issues arising from plastic waste have become increasingly severe. Plastic waste enters the oceans directly or indirectly through land and rivers, affecting marine life and ecosystems. Therefore, the “People vs. Plastics” campaign initiated by the China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation’s Plastic Reduction and Pickup Working Group, along with three resulting reports (Brand Report, Category Report, and Behavior Report), aims to urge brands and industries to pay more attention to the issue of plastic waste from their products and actively engage in reducing and mitigating environmental damage and impacts during the production process. Meanwhile, these reports also help governments better understand the distribution of plastic waste in local regions, take it seriously and work towards its resolution.
Key words: Plastic waste, People vs. Plastics, reports
