With a giant a plastic chandelier honing inside a canopy as their set piece, Student Sustainability Practices hosted “Plastic by the Numbers.”

This event took place at Trinity Commons on Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. “Plastic by the Numbers” had a main goal of showing students the impact of plastic bottle use and to teach better recycling habits. Those who participated in the event could take part in raffles and free food.

“I think that we get this message a lot; plastic is bad, plastic is bad, plastic is an issue. We always hear about it. We hear these numbers,” Cole Euell, President of Student Sustainability Practices, said. “What we wanted to do with this was to bring something in front of their eyes that you visualize the problem and that’s what the chandelier does.”
