K-Cup Challenge

Name: Erika Syokau
Email: esyokau@worceter.edu

WSU Enactus is looking to limit the amount of plastic waste on campus from researching the usage of non reusable; plastic K-Cups. K Cups are non bio degradable, meaning they never get recycled. This survey will help us determine to see if there is a need for K-Cup plastic change here at WSU. Potentially in the future, we plan to take this plastic from our campus and possibly turn it into an item that is recyclable in the future.
