Philadelphia Public School Students Discover A “Systemic Local Litter Solution”

by | August 07, 2020

Sponsored by the city, Philadelphia public school students used Litterati to run an engaging lesson unit all over town.

Some of the student’s work led to systemic solutions. Their findings were that the most commonly littered item around the school was plastic straws & plastic straw wrappers.

Students told their administration that they didn’t need the straws in the cafeteria so the schools stopped ordering them.

The result? Common litter got stopped before it could even have the chance to happen.

And with ongoing monitoring with Litterati, your city can experience these kinds of provable, sustainable wins in litter abatement.
