This was an interesting project I did for my environmental sciences class. I and my teammates implemented a plan for waste reduction at our local cafe. It was awesome to see that we could create plans to change for the better by starting within the school.
This essay is on the dangers of plastic pollution and the benefits of zero waste living, as said in the title. I personally care about this mission a lot and when given the opportunity to outwardly bash the girls who called themselves “eco warriors” in my French class but who bought every single plastic item available at Tim’s during lunch everyday, how could I resist!? But also, education is important and I was surprised to discover that many in my class had never even heard of micro-plastics, which are now a primary component of our everyday lives, even though they may not always be visible to the human eye. Very fun research project!
