Welcome “Antonio Gramsci famously imparted: “Pessimism of the intellect, optimism of the will.” Who is MPP and what do we do? Move Past Plastic (MPP) is a grassroots organization in central Pennsylvania sponsored by TLC Foundation, founded June 7th, 2021. We are a conglomeration of individuals, businesses, and organizations.

We meet on the 3rd Monday of the month at 6p.m.

Mission:

To help communities understand the complexities of the single use plastic (SUP) crisis and move toward a regenerative economy by offering resources, education, and support to businesses and municipal governance to change legislation, ordinances, other rule making, use SUP alternatives, decrease consumption and waste.

Vision:

Promote moving away from single use plastics and toward a regenerative, circular economy that has a mutualistic relationship with nature and a respect for all people.

We are in this together

MMP's three main working groups are: Legislation, Public Awareness/Education, and Research. We place an emphasis on acting locally to support and promote the efforts of many partnering organizations and businesses. MPP supports the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act which supports extended producer responsibility. It is important to network with companies who use alternatives to plastic packing and products. It is more important to move away from a disposable, consumption base economy to a regenerative, circular economy by encouraging the passing of new legislation that supports infrastructure, design, and funding for products that can be reused, repaired, and recycled. We focus on issues for creating social and environmental justice. We give people and groups a forum to join together to make connections and build a community to address the Single Use Plastic (SUP) crisis.
