ECCO Project

The Problem

I work for an environmental nonprofit trying to solve the problems of single-use plastics and plastic pollution. The objectives of the ECCO Project are to reduce single-use plastics, raise awareness about the larger ecological crisis facing us, increase knowledge about solutions, increase critical thinking about personal habits and foster creative thinking for personal change. I want to raise the profile for reuse and source reduction and educate students on the limitations of recycling, and empower the students to be agents of change in their local community.

Plan of Action

The ECCO Project is being run in two Portland public schools. It's a nine week curriculum focusing not only on education through art but also education through science-learning and organized action-taking.
