Description:

The Plastic Pollution Coalition at UCSB (UCSB PPC) is a pilot project of the national Plastic Pollution Coalition’s Plastic Free Campuses program. The UCSB PPC was initiated in the Fall of 2011 with over 19 coalition members. The mission of the coalition is to reduce and ultimately eliminate single-use plastics from the UCSB campus. Last year, the coalition partnered with the UCSB Bookstore with the goal to transition from single-use plastic bags to compostable bags made of high grade corn resin. The UCSB PPC works to educate the UCSB community, enact policy initiatives, and encourage sustainable alternatives to single use plastic items.

On April 1st 2013, the UCSB Plastic Pollution Coalition will be hosting our annual Day Without a Bottle event. There will be five booths in front of university convenience stores giving away free reusable water bottles, educating students on how they can reduce their plastic footprints, and raffling off free prizes. The day will end with performances by campus students and local musicians.

The Day Without a Bottle Celebration will include student performers:
Amatory Dance Crew
VOMO
Intervals Acapella
Mr. Eco
Unite Movement Crew
Naked Voices
WHAT

Come out to pledge to refuse plastic, enter to win great raffle prizes, learn about the effects of single-use plastic on the environment, and see some great student performances!
