Plastic-free Lower Merion is a toolkit for the members of the Lower Merion Climate Action Coalition to get students, parents, and faculty involved in reducing single use plastics in the schools and the wider community. These activities are designed to be applied at all levels of the school -- clubs, classrooms, faculty, parents, school leadership -- so that members can choose the one(s) that work best for them.
Participating schools should choose just one or two of these items to work on at time. As a coalition, our work is about the collective. Each of us doing one piece adds up to a lot of pieces.
This list belongs to all of us. It will grow as we explore these ideas, refine them, add to them, and link useful resources. As you work through items listed below, please send us updates, additions, and resources that can be shared with others.
