Reducing Plastic: A How-To Guide!
Our mission is to make events more sustainable by providing support and reusable dishes as a free and accessible alternative to disposable items at events, meetings, and other gatherings. We aim to engage our on and off campus communities in the shared economy, to reduce waste, and rethink consumer culture one paper plate at a time.
Our vision is to empower people to reconnect with and rethink waste justice in solidarity with impacted communities.
