UPSTREAM- a U.S based organization that sparks innovative solutions to plastic pollution by addressing the root cause of the problem- the throw away culture. By transitioning to reusable food packaging, we can provide solutions not only to the plastic pollution problem, but also to climate change, and to better protections for human health. UPSTREAM is building a reuse movement by developing and advancing state and local policies for reusable foodware, elevating new reuse business models, and sharing the innovative work being done to replace single-use packaging with reusable alternatives.
