Stasher 101: Fundamentals of Sustainable Dorm Life
Register for a Chance to Get FREE Stasher Bags for Your College Campus
October means sweater weather, pumpkin-spiced everything, and college football. But it’s also Campus Sustainability Month! And just as students are settling into dorms and new routines, it’s also the perfect time to start practicing sustainability in daily life.
That’s why Stasher — your favorite endlessly reusable silicone bag — wants to help college and university students from all 50 states reduce single-use plastic waste in dorms.
As part of our Stasher Gives initiative, we’re giving away 500 Stasher bags to 50 colleges and universities — 25,000 in total — for student giveaways during 2021 Campus Sustainability Month activities. Register your campus sustainability group no later than October 1, 2021 for a chance to participate.
Did you know that if just one person replaces a single-use plastic bag with a reusable alternative one time per day, five times per week, they are removing 260 single-use plastic bags from entering the waste stream per year? Please help us give away these 25,000 bags and eliminate more than 6 million single-use plastic bags from littering our landfills and oceans.
