Did you know that 80% of marine debris originates on land? Plastic street litter is not just ugly, it ends up in our rivers, bays and oceans, harming and killing marine wildlife.

Cafeteria Culture (CafCu) is empowering students with leadership, storytelling skills... and cameras. We are teaching students to think critically about real world environmental problems and to instigate their own Trash Free Waters messaging for their communities and for the entire world!

Students are debating, asking questions, collecting data, and telling their own powerful stories about how local street litter becomes global toxic marine pollution.

Cafeteria Culture's Youth ARTS+MEDIA for TRASH FREE WATERS video series is created by 5th - 8th grade students from New York City Department of Education schools. The interdisciplinary environmental education teaches students

YOUTH ARTS + MEDIA for TRASH FREE WATERS School Program (2016) was generously funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 2, Sustainable Materials Management Section, CASD.  Cafeteria Culture is most appreciative  of additional support via our UL Innovative Education Award (2015), The Fund for the City of New York, and private donors.

Cafeteria Culture is working to achieve zero waste schools and climate smart communities through education, arts, media, and action.
