·Your funds will directly aid various projects the plastic pollution coalition is involved in. Currently one of their main projects is plastic free campuses. School and college campuses are often the source of enormous amounts of plastic pollution. The coalition has created a network of over 1500 schools worldwide that have made initiatives to significantly reduce their plastic foot print. School is just about to start and I hope to work with my school to reduce our plastic footprint and be added to the global group of plastic free campuses.
