In keeping with its mission to represent and serve as the voice of the plastics industry locally, nationally and internationally, the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) works to influence public policy. Through its Advocacy Action Center, PLASTICS provides a grassroots network to rally the 954,000 plastics workers nationwide.

Grassroots mobilization is a powerful tool in the arsenal of issues advocacy. By uniting the various segments of the broad-based plastics industry – one of the largest manufacturing industries in the nation – into a single, cohesive voice, PLASTICS seeks to effect change in the public policy arena.
