Participants will create a three-dimensional plastic pizza/pie slice out of assorted plastic and paper “waste” and other petroleum-driven disposables often consumed by families. Each individual slice creation will be combined to make a whole pie(s), representing 6 things your family can start to do to reduce plastic waste consumption in your household. These pizzas/pies can be delivered to key decision-makers in the community, offering slices of solutions that can be implemented at a larger level.
