the project

Less than 7% of plastics are recycled globally. The rest is landfilled, floating around in our environment or incinerated.

Sacramento Reduces is a waste reduction initiative that raises the importance of quitting plastics by partnering with local government, businesses and consumers to reduce the environmental impacts of day-to-day operations.

We have successfully raised the problem of single use plastics to local leaders, and joined other local chapters ( - we see more opportunities to engage the community in the circular economy, which is why we need you to donate and SPREAD THE WORD!

Let's grow the reuse movement faster and ship less waste to landfill or incinerators.
We will recruit makers, neighborhoods and businesses to reduce waste and support the BYO Container/Bag practice
We will demo and offer reuse kits and train up our local partner environmental orgs and local vendors
We will write letters to editors to pilot reusable options and advise businesses on dine-in or compostable options for our local businesses
We will urge dry cleaners to offer reusable options instead of plastics
We will continue to press legislators to ban polystyrene and move to ban common plastic nuisances for good

Our rivers, streets and oceans must be protected from disposable and microplastics in our lives. | IG: @sacramentoreduces

the steps

* Channel Sacramento's creative spirit into creative reuse projects and engagements with creatives, NGOs, local business and government leaders

* Apply to Wednesdays at Winn and appear at other markets to showcase and demo reusable items to customers and vendors

* Promote plastic reduction and cleanup efforts around the parks, neighborhoods and waterways

* Showcase our efforts to make policy changes at the city level and strengthen our resolve to be a green city!

why we're doing it

Plastics are a downstream product of fossil fuel extraction, which scientists and the global community acknowledge we must end.

Problems with recycling and disposal inevitably contaminate our water, air and soil.

We are running this direct action to safeguard our water, air and soil in all our best interests

Our vision is to make Sacramento a better place to live and visit.
