This is a news release that I wrote for the University of South Carolina. Due to South Carolina’s historic flood, there was no drinkable water from the city system for almost two weeks. This caused many people to buy bottles, which created a lot of extra plastic waste. The news release I wrote explains how the university will deal with the increased need for plastic recycling during this time.
