Student Guide: Plastic Pollution Activism


Policy Change


In this section of the guide, we have resources on how to create change through policy - on your campus, in your community or at the state or federal level. Let your politicians (or school administrators) know that you support reusable and sustainable practices by attending meetings, writing letters, or starting a campaign at your school!
