Welcome to the Break Free from Plastic website. Our goal is to find ways to reduce the amount of single-use plastic that is used at Middlebury College. We are pursuing multiple avenues to achieve this. If you want to get involved, the first two quick ways of helping, are described below:

The Plastic Survey

We are interested in the views of our fellow students regarding their use of plastic at Middlebury. Please go here to fill in a short survey on your plastic use. So far 102 students have filled in the survey.

The Pledge

Would you like to have Laurie Patton, our college’s president, commit our college to reducing the use of plastic on campus. If so, encourage her to sign “The Pledge” by clicking here. So far 88 students have supported the pledge.

Getting Involved

If you want to get directly involved in reducing plastic personally, check out our Water Filling Stations web page available in the menu above.
