In schools throughout the nation, we are taught to “reduce, reuse, and recycle” but are then given single-use plastic cutlery during the lunch hour. Single-use plastics contribute a significant amount of waste and pollution to the environment and are altogether unsustainable. It is time to move back to using silverware in schools and using compostable alternatives where food can be taken to go. Getting rid of single-use plastics in the school system will create better habits for young consumers and reduce overall environmental impact. In my presentation, I will discuss the pros and cons of moving away from single-use cutlery and how explaining this decision to students will have a long term effect on their environmental awareness.
