It is estimated that 40 billion individual single-use plastic utensils are discarded every year in the United States. Clean Water Action's ReThink Disposable program is working to stop plastic trash advocating for a "Skip the Stuff" bill in New Jersey! Restaurants should only give out single-use plastic cutlery and condiment containers if requested by customers. Together, we will reduce litter, plastics pollution and related health impacts while saving small businesses money by skipping the stuff in take-out food orders, as seen in work by ReThink Disposable.
