Calling Nestlé
Calling Nestlé
Yesterday, I was outside Nestlé’s United States corporate headquarters with your message AND a giant plastic monster!

In 2018 alone, Nestlé was responsible for creating nearly 4 billion pounds of single-use plastic packaging that in many cases is not recyclable or reusable — instead it will end up as waste forever haunting our planet!

We need to strike while the iron is hot. Will you help us tell Nestlé how dire the plastic pollution crisis truly is? Call Nestlé right this moment at 1-888-918-6672 and tell them they must phase out their reliance on single-use plastic packaging, and move to refillable and reusable options.

I cannot bear to see another headline about communities overrun by the global waste trade – or another dead whale with a gut full of plastic. So my friends and I called out Nestlé at its office with a giant monster made with discarded Nestlé packaging. If you feel like I do, please join us by calling out Nestlé over the phones.

Calling is easy, takes less than two minutes, and is one of the best ways to make sure Nestlé is listening. Just follow these simple steps:

1. Dial 1-888-918-6672.

2. Listen to a short message from Greenpeace. We’ll then patch you through to Nestlé’s customer service line.

3. When you’re connected, be polite and say what you think about Nestlé’s plastic packaging. Here is a suggested script: Hi, my name is ______ and I’m calling from CITY, STATE. I’m very concerned by the massive amount of single-use plastic pollution and Nestlé is one of the largest global corporations that relies heavily on such packaging. I would like Nestlé to be an industry leader and phase out single-use plastic, while innovating bold, new solutions like refillable and reusable packaging. Thank you!

You can also send a message demanding an end to single-use plastic on Nestle's Facebook, or on Instagram or Twitter.

Nestlé needs to hear from you right now. You’ve already joined millions signing petitions demanding an end to its single-use plastic and spreading the word on social media. They know they’ve created a problem, but they don’t want to be the ones to solve it. The solution, however, is in their hands, and the time is now. Nestlé must make the switch to systems of reuse.

For a plastic free future,

Kate Melges
Senior Plastics Campaigner, Greenpeace USA

P.S. Yesterday, Greenpeace activists showed up at other Nestlé offices all over the world. We need to strike while the iron is hot. Make your voice heard by calling Nestlé right now at 1-888-918-6672. Let’s make sure this is a day Nestlé executives never forget.
