Description

Award for "Best Our Husky Compact Reflection: Act with Personal Integrity and Civic Responsibility".

Abstract

My project requires people to reflect on their plastic/paper bag usage and how that affects their surroundings. Additionally, this may lead to a person becoming more self-aware on their waste production and help them to think of responsible ways to decrease wastefulness, creating a sense of empowerment. Requiring people to pay for each plastic or paper bag they use is one incentive to decrease or cease their usage. People will have to reason with themselves if it is worth paying the fee or if they want to avoid it. Some may become creative, finding ways to reuse their plastic or paper bags, in order to justify the fee. Some may start using reusable bags as one way to get around paying the fee. This project is research and survey based.
