A brief description of the single-use disposable plastics that have been banned or eliminated:

SINGLE-USE PLASTIC BAN
Bennington College’s Beyond Plastics Initiatives seeks to educate students on solutions on how to clean up plastics that are seemingly everywhere in the environment. In keeping with curriculum development, the College has eliminated the sale and distribution of all single-use disposable plastic cups and mugs. Additionally, Dining Services have transitioned to use locally-sourced eggs, ending the purchasing of the plastics used in liquid egg packaging.
