• Pass Up Plastic Challenge
    Pass Up Plastic Challenge

    This challenge aims to highlight the pervasiveness of single-use plastic and ways that the UNH community can take direct action to reduce plastic use.

    Collect your single-use plastics and try to reduce single-use plastic use for the week of April 16. Post photos, questions, and comments about your experience to @sustainableUNH and #passupplastic.

    On Friday, April 20, you can bring the clean plastic you've collected to the Sustainability Institute in exchange for a sustainability t-shirt. We will sort and recycle the plastic.
