A 6 week program to assess, minimize and advocate for reduction in plastics usage. This project is presented by College Park Climate Action Neighborhood to help individuals and households find real solutions to their daily plastic use. At the end of the course attendees will be encouraged to utilize what they’ve learned through action and participation in climate conversations, book clubs, writing letters to the editor, petitioning for bans on single use plastics etc.. This Plastics Awareness Project starting Wed. March 20, 7pm, would not be possible without our College Park Climate Action Neighborhood partner Franklin & Marshall College and the Center for the Sustainable Environment.
Additionally, we are grateful for a grant received from the Mountain Watershed Association to cover the cost of this program.
