2017-18 Mini Challenge #1

Key Biscayne recently passed a resolution to encourage the public and businesses to stop the use of plastic bags. Plastic pollution is a continuous and serious problem for both the local wildlife and environment. There have been studies showing that animals, like turtles, ingest plastic bags mistaking them for jellyfish or other types of food, and the plastic can smother and suffocate more sedentary animals, like coral. We want our kids to learn to limit their use of plastic and to learn about alternative methods to reduce plastic product use.

This challenge requires participants to come up with a design that will be reproduced on reusable bags, with which we hope to promote reduction in plastic use. These bags will be used to encourage people for use with their groceries or other shopping, so that they do not have to continually receive and collect single-use plastic bags.
