Faculty mentor: Jennifer Follstad-Shah

Single-use plastics are an issue in developing countries and students participating in learning abroad programs contribute to it in their reliance on bottled water while traveling. Background research, surveys, and campus partnerships were used to better understand the issue and consider ways in which drinking water could be better addressed by learning abroad programs. Increasing education and use of water purification devices and methods in study abroad programs is an opportunity for change.
