Make your own pollution prevention video

Pollution Prevention Week 2012 Video Contest

In celebration of National Pollution Prevention Week (September 17-23), DTSC and the Western Sustainability and Pollution Prevention Network (WSPPN) are asking people to make a short video that shows how making small changes in our daily lives can have a positive impact on the environment. 
The theme of the contest, “What's your footprint?”, is about exploring how lifestyle choices can create a net positive impact on the environment. We hope this contest encourages you to share your own experiences on how to reduce your environmental footprint while learning what others are doing. Videos submitted for this contest should encourage the audience to make choices that support pollution prevention. For examples of pollution prevention, click here.
