Plastic pollution is everywhere. It's clogging our landfills; killing sea-life; and we breath and ingest it into our bodies after it erodes into microplastics. Launched in January 2019, Beyond Plastics is a nationwide project based at Bennington College in Bennington, Vermont, that pairs the wisdom and experience of environmental policy experts with the energy and creativity of college students to build a vibrant and effective anti-plastics movement. Learn what communities like Bethlehem can do to eliminate this menace to the environment and our health.

Judith Enck is the founder and Director of Beyond Plastics. She is also a Senior Fellow and Visiting Faculty member at Bennington College, where she teaches classes on plastic pollution, and can be heard regularly on WAMC. She previously served as the Regional Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
