Plastic Pollution

Meridian Institute

Grant period

2022 - 2023



The Meridian Institute brings stakeholders together—via the Reuse Refill Action Forum—to drive action on plastic reuse and refill initiatives and policy. A grant from the Foundation enables the Action Forum to bridge sector divides and catalyze progress on reusable systems with deeper collaboration and more engagement with key stakeholders, including low-income and minority businesses and community organizations and enables it to expand its reach, bringing North American reuse and refill learnings to inform international forums such as the World Economic Forum’s Consumers Beyond Waste initiative and the global treaty on plastics negotiation process.
