8 in 10 American Voters Support a National Policy Reducing Single-Use Plastic

In February 2022, Oceana released a nationwide poll (link to results below) revealing that most Republican and Democratic voters are concerned about single-use plastics and support policies that reduce them. Included among the key findings: 84% of American voters are concerned about plastic pollution and its impact on the environment and our oceans; 86% are concerned about single-use plastic products; and 81% support local, state, and national policies that reduce single-use plastic. 

The poll, conducted by the nonpartisan polling company Ipsos, surveyed 1,005 American adults from across the U.S. between Nov. 5 and 9, 2021, and found broad bipartisan support for policies that reduce products like single-use plastic bags, foam foodware, takeout containers, and packaging from online shopping.
