Has the institution banned or eliminated the on-site sales and distribution of at least one type of single-use disposable plastic?:
Yes

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

In Jan. 2020 Pratt banned the sale of single-use plastic water bottles. Single-use water bottles have been entirely removed from the cafeterias, cafes, stores and vending machines on the main Brooklyn Campus. Re-usable water bottles are being sold at these retail locations, where students, faculty and staff are encouraged to use bottle-filling stations across campus. After the closure of our dining facilities in March 2020, Pratt is happy to announce that single-use plastic water bottles will again be removed as of March1, 2022.
