These young entrepreneurs realized that the student population at their school is capable of producing millions of pounds of plastic waste each year. They applied for an Eco-Audit Grant to start a school eco-store, which will sell items that replace disposable plastics like water bottles, bags, and straws. The income earned will be reinvested in more sustainable products that the student would like to buy.
