Today, kids don’t remember what it was like when people smoked on airplanes or in restaurants. In a generation, we’ve gone from half the population smoking to less than 14%. Smoke-Free Places was a big part of that change. How do we make this kind of change happen for single-use plastic and our throw-away lifestyle? Enter Throw-Away-Free Places!
Imagine you’re going to catch a ballgame, or head out to a concert, or you’re taking your kid to a zoo or theme park. Now imagine there’s no more throw-away stuff.
Imagine taking throw-away-free to an entire city - no more disposable stuff when you’re sitting down to eat, and all the restaurants and food delivery services are using reusable cups and to-go boxes that are part of a community system run by innovative new businesses.
Sound crazy? Pie in the sky? The great news is that it’s happening right now.
