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!!!
