Project Title & Description
Reduce the Use - A Youth Initiative
This campaign is titled "Reduce the Use" and will include a two-day retreat for mentors and youth for team building, research and campaign development. This project is to initiate a youth-driven waste reduction and personal stewardship campaign by banning plastic grocery bags and styrofoam cups and replacing them with "potlatch bags" and education about solid waste accumulation in the landfills. "Plastics" will be exchanged for potlatch bags at the community gatherings. Youth will assess the amount of waste collected from community dinners by counting the number of garbage bags and comparing it to the dinners previously taken place.
