How To Participate In Plastic Free July — At School & University
Schools and universities tend to produce a lot of waste, but it doesn’t matter whether you’re a student, teacher, parent, or principal — you can help your educational institution to reduce waste. The good news is that many schools and universities already have sustainability committees, so you can introduce the idea of Plastic Free July to like-minded individuals.
But, you don’t have to do it alone! Plastic Free July has a dedicated Plastic Free Schools Challenge, which equips your school or university with the support to get involved. Help:
- Reduce your school canteen or university cafe’s reliance on single-use plastics.
- Encourage parents to pack plastic-free school lunches.
- Assist your institution with planning plastic-free events.
