Our mission is to expand our knowledge about plastics and how they impact our environment and health. Our goal is to provide the results of our findings to governmental policy makers and industry decision makers. 

The Moore Institute works closely with our sister org, Algalita; the organization that started the movement to end plastic pollution nearly 25 years ago.  Algalita has sparked connections between scientists, policymakers, corporations, young change-makers, and subject matter experts across the globe. 


Location: Long Beach, CA

Our board meets every two months to discuss organizational strategy and sustainability. Virtual participation is available, however some in-person events will be mandatory. This is a volunteer opportunity, and no previous board experience is required.

A great opportunity to build your resume!


So that MIPPR can credibly solicit contributions from foundations, organizations, and individuals, we expect to have 100% of Board Members make an annual contribution that is commensurate with their capacity.  To that end, the Board has established an annual “give or get” contribution threshold of $100, which can be satisfied through monetary donations or in-kind contributions of services or other resources.
