Join the Fight to #StopFormosaPlastics
Formosa Plastics, a company with a long, dirty record, wants to build a massive petrochemical facility along the Mississippi River in St. James Parish, Louisiana.
Expanding plastic production in Louisiana will harm communities in “Cancer Alley”-- referred to as “Death Alley” by those who live and die there--by burdening the predominantly black community with toxic air and water pollution.
The proposed plant would turn fracked gas into plastic pellets used to make throwaway plastic products like bags, utensils, and straws. This plant is just one of hundreds of petrochemical projects the fossil fuel industry is pursuing in their plan to increase U.S. plastic production by 40% over the next decade.
