Action Camp is back for Plastic Free July!

This highly interactive, virtual, 4-week course provides the basic background and organizing tools needed to jumpstart a plastics campaign on your campus. It is for students that are interested in making their school plastic-, and waste-free long-term. We will go over all stages of the plastic cycle, and learn the basics of a successful campaign. 

There are currently over 70 active Break Free From Plastic campus campaigns, and 8 campuses (including the entire University of California system!) have committed to eliminating single-use plastics. Your campus could be next! Reach out to young@postlandfill.org with any questions.

Effort: 4 weeks, 2 days a week, 1.5 hours a day.

Price: The cost to run this program is around $100/student. Sliding scale pricing is $25-100 donation or $5/month donor. Scholarships are available; no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

“Action Camp equipped me with the skill base to feel confident tackling the systemic issues of petrochemical and plastics buildout on my campus. I strongly recommend this camp to any student who wants to hone their organizing skills through the lens of environmental justice.”

– Rachael Hood, West Virginia University, Summer 2020
