Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

UCSC is not on target to meet its Zero Waste goal in 2020. Plastic waste is arguably the most difficult and most important component to eliminate from the waste stream. Plastic Sucks: For a Plastic-Waste-Free Campus aims to remove plastic from UCSC wherever possible. The first and most important step is to stop as much plastic waste (much of it in the form of plastic packaging) from coming onto the campus in the first place.
