Millennium Fellowship Project: No, Thank You
No, Thank You is a project designed to reduce single-use plastics as much as possible on our Lynn University campus. My project works closely with the maintenance department at Lynn trying to find biodegradable alternatives for the trash bags used campus-wide and other single-use plastic items like in our vending machines and campus store.
