Back To Throw-Away-Free Living

Pilot Projects

UPSTREAM is thrilled to partner with pioneer organizations across the country working to become Throw-Away-Free including: The Aquarium Conservation Partnership (ACP) which represents 22 AZA-accredited aquariums with over 44 million visitors each year; and the Green Sports Alliance representing 194 venues, 195 venues and 16 leagues.

Aquariums can be throw-away-free

Our first venue partners are New York Aquarium, New England Aquarium, and Mystic Aquarium. We are actively creating model throw-away-free places in various sectors including zoos/aquariums/museums, sports stadiums and airports.

We look forward to telling their stories, and inspiring other venues and sectors to go throw-away-free.
