5Gyres – Nix the 6
Number 6 plastics are made of polystyrene; and are difficult to recycle. Nix the Six aimed to remove polystyrene from waste streams through encouraging pledges for individuals, businesses and communities to refuse single-use polystyrene plastic and generate enough support to have polystyrene banned.
Through an analytical framework, we've reviewed over 100 plastic policies. These reviews determine the effectiveness of policies in reducing plastic pollution and we offer recommendations in light of this evidence, to enhance future policy making.
