Plastic Soup Foundation encourages community engagement and values connecting with our global audiences online. Share, discuss, and discover information and ideas through our social networks and connect with other like-minded individuals. We welcome your questions and comments. In order to keep our communities and conversations focused, we’ve established the following guidelines:
Social networks are public
Plastic Soup Foundation’s online communities are open to the public. Anything posted to our social networks may be seen and read by everyone. Because our pages are public and anyone can participate, we cannot be responsible for views expressed other than our own.
Stay on topic
Your comments should be related to the topics posted on our social networks. We reserve the right to delete off-topic comments, and, for instance, will remove any marketing materials, commercial content, and other types of “spam” (such as comments that are posted repeatedly), and will ban users as appropriate.
Make sure it’s yours
Only post content if you have the proper permission from its rightful owners. If it belongs to someone else, please don’t post it. Copyrighted and trademarked material and other intellectual property will be flagged for removal.
Be kind and courteous
We believe you can make a positive contribution to our online communities, and we want to hear your voice. We welcome questions and commentary, including constructive feedback and differing opinions, but please remember to be both relevant and respectful with what you post. We do not tolerate harassment, abuse, or threats to others. We reserve the right to remove any posts that don’t adhere to our guidelines and to block anyone who violates them repeatedly. Specifically, we do not tolerate posts that are:
- Abusive, harassing, stalking, threatening or attacking others
- Defamatory, offensive, obscene, vulgar or depicting violence
- References to upsetting or distressing subjects
- Hateful in language targeting race/ethnicity, age, color, creed, religion, gender, sexual preference or orientation, nationality or political beliefs

Removal of posts and user bans
We reserve the right to remove any comments or content that doesn’t adhere to these guidelines. We may also block users who violate the rules or otherwise abuse our online communities.
