Eckerd Reduce Single-Use

Our Project

Eckerd College was awarded a $115,124 grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Marine Debris Program to reduce single-use plastic on campus. This grant allows Eckerd College students to conduct research on campus-wide plastic consumption by analyzing and collecting observational data to facilitate single-use plastic reduction at Eckerd.

Our goal is to educate the community about the harmful results of using single-use plastics, and how students, faculty, and staff can reduce their plastic consumption by choosing to refuse.

We will be hosting beach cleanups throughout the semester, so check our calendar for upcoming event dates!
