Miami Is Not Plastic is an initiative to reduce Single Use Disposable Plastic and join the global movement to unclog our ocean and save the marine life.

 

We strive to transform communities through education, awareness and responsible practices. We inspire local business in the hospitality, parks and marina sector in the Miami area to adopt alternative options to single use disposable plastic.

We partner with several organizations in our quest to protect the environment.

 

Join us and be part of the movement!
