Battling Plastic Pollution

For a recent year's project, 6th grade students chose battling plastic polution.
Students researched different types of plastic pollution (i.e., plastic straws, bags, etc.), then developed and implemented a plan to improve the situation surrounding their chosen topic. The results were impressive.
  • Area restaurants are displaying student-created posters and flyers about problems caused by plastic straws.
  • Eleven local marinas are distributing and posting flyers about the dangers of abandoned crab traps.
  • The Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission is displaying student-created posters about the dangers of cigarette littering at 13 area boat landings.
  • See a video created by the 6th graders here.
