SanLorenzo

Starting with their school and then bringing it to their community, San Lorenzo interns are on a mission to eliminate major sources of litter. Perhaps not surprisingly, juice boxes are a major contributor of litter on campus. So the interns created a Change.org petition asking their school’s beverage provider to alter the juice box packaging to eliminate straws and straw wrappers, preventing litter at its source.
