    Stemming the Tide: Taking Action on Campus Against Plastic Pollution

    With the average college student producing about 640 pounds of trash each year, campuses need comprehensive waste management programs that provide tracking, reporting, education, awareness, fun, and creativity. Stemming the Tide is for students, clubs, resident advisors, staff and faculty to use as a resource to get started and tackle plastics on campus. This guide features smaller, individual actions, and campus-wide engagement campaigns and includes information about the plastics pollution problem, its impacts on humans and wildlife, action ideas, and educational strategies.
