Campus Sustainability Month — October 2017
Useful Information About Plastic Pollution
- Cuyahoga County Council is considering a 10 cent plastic bag fee in order to reduce plastic bag use and thus reduce plastic pollution in Lake Erie and connecting waters. Read an FAQ sheet about the proposed legislation.
- Single-Use Plastic Bag Facts from the Center for Biological Diversity
- How Do Japanese Dump Trash? Let Us Count the Myriad Ways - an article from the New York Times.
- Please consider reducing your use of plastic straws. Many restaurants automatically bring you a straw with every drink, but you can ask them not to do so ... or you can give it back to them if they serve a straw with your drink. Why all the fuss about straws? Read The Turtle That Became the Anti-Plastic Straw Poster Child from the Plastic Pollution Coalition.
