 This weekend, Environment Washington Research and Policy Center teamed up with University of Washington student organizations WashPIRG Campus Action, Beautify UW, and Green Greeks to hold a community clean-up event on Make a Difference Day titled “WRAP Up Waste”
With over 25 volunteers, we picked up over 120 lbs of trash in and around Ravenna Park. In addition to picking up litter in our community, attendees learned about policy solutions to stop plastic pollution and improve waste management outcomes at the source, like establishing producer responsibility for packaging and paper products in Washington. 
A special thanks to our event sponsors and volunteers at who made everything run smoothly on Saturday, and to Rep. Julia Reed for her inspiring words around the power of individual action in advancing state level policies that can address the root cause of plastic reduction policies.
