The AWAY Project : Achieving Waste Awareness with You.
It’s a week-long experiment about what we throw away, and asking the tough question of where is “away” when we throw stuff away? Take a look at this video to learn more about the exciting project!!
Success so far:
- 907 students
- 79% of students reported they’d be making a change in their life to positively impact their community and environment!!
- 160 duffel bags constructed from reclaimed vinyl material (oh heyyy upcycling trash into utility!!) made locally in San Diego (read: that’s reusing these bags over 5 times each!!)
- 7 different schools
- 6th to 12th graders!
- Really awesome Instagram devoted exclusively to #AWAYproject: www.instagram.com/awayproject
Learn by doing! Live by example! That’s what we like here at 1:1!!!
