#ZeroLitter @SanLorenzoHS Petition Change


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.

Now they’re tackling litter around the City of Hayward. Preliminary data indicate cigarette butts are a leading source of litter. Next they’ll work to uncover areas of concentration and look to find solutions.
