Plastic Problem on Campuses Tackled by Strategic Alliance - High Profile Initiative to Reduce Plastic Consumption on School Campuses Coming This Year
6/11/12 -- On June 21, 2012, at Plasticity Rio, the first side event focused on the future of plastic, and where the leaders are going, as part of the RIO +20 Earth Summit, Plastic Pollution Coalition and Plastic Disclosure Project, a Clinton Global Initiative project, will announce an exciting new partnership and collaboration to help college and school campuses in their efforts to reduce plastic pollution. Together, Plastic Pollution Coalition and Plastic Disclosure Project have set a 2012 goal to engage 100 campuses in 10 countries with a commitment to measure their plastic footprint.
The partnership with the Plastic Disclosure Project will be rolled out through Plastic Free Campuses, a project of the Plastic Pollution Coalition. According to PPC’s Executive Director, Daniella Russo, “This partnership is a logical next step for Plastic Free Campuses, who are already working to evaluate their plastic footprint.”
