GLRPPR Sector Resource: Marine Debris & Plastic Source Reduction Toolkit for Colleges & Universities

Title:
Marine Debris & Plastic Source Reduction Toolkit for Colleges & Universities

Abstract:
Many plastic food service ware items originate on college and university campuses -- in cafeterias, snack rooms, cafes, and eateries with take-out dining options. That's why we created this Campus Plastic Source Reduction Toolkit. The toolkit was piloted at three University of California (UC) campuses--Santa Barbara (UCSB), San Diego (UCSD), and San Francisco (UCSF) -- but we designed each of these steps to be replicable and easily implemented by other colleges and universities around the country. By following the steps in the toolkit, you can help your college or university reduce plastic waste through source reduction -- the process of minimizing the amount of plastic used. Together, we can cut down on plastic waste and reduce the amount of marine debris polluting the planet's oceans and waterways.
