How Students at Two Local High Schools Tackle Plastics Pollution

Monday, March 4, 2019

If the early years of the plastics war had a mascot, it would have been bottled water. The early generation of environmentalists did their best to convince the public of the hazardous impacts of single-use plastic bottles, but the American obsession persisted. Now, plastic waste has polluted waters everywhere, including Narragansett Bay. And, since plastic can take hundreds of years to break down, the burden of managing this problem will fall on the youngest among us today—which is why Save The Bay puts fostering the next generation of Bay stewards at the forefront of its education  programs.
