 Welcome to PFC v2.0

WHAT IS IT?

Plastic Free Campus, PFC is dedicated to helping schools fight single-use plastic pollution worldwide. PFC helps schools make a difference for the environment and our own health.

WHY?

  • Plastic pollution is a real issue – just look around
  • Plastics are made from oil and gas and their production harms our environment from added greenhouse gases.
  • Nature can’t digest it, Plastics break UP into smaller pieces called micro-plastics.  It never breaks down.
  • Plastics affect millions of sea and land creatures who are injured or killed eating them.
  • Plastics are now found everywhere: in our food, drink, in nature and all over the planet.
  • Plastic food and drink packaging often contain harmful chemical additives that affect human health.

 

Therefore, we need to kick the plastics habit.

HOW?

  • Enabling schools and communities to make a meaningful environmental impact
  • Inspiring students to adopt sustainable values within their own live
  • Empowering them throughout the art of negotiation and self-guided research.
