CEH Action

Working for better plastics

We believe that you have the right to know what’s in the plastics used for your food and drinks, and the right to safer plastics. Our aim is to encourage industry to make comprehensive pre-market assessments of their plastic food containers, including assessing whether the use of alternative, more sustainable materials like metal, glass, and ceramic would be possible.  We are also working with the Business-NGO Working Group to help create a Sustainable Plastics Scorecard. We will continue to expose the health hazards in potentially toxic food-contact plastics, bring attention to the need for safer alternatives, and protect children and families from these hidden health threats.
