Post-Landfill Action Network (PLAN)

The Post-Landfill Action Network (PLAN) supports students in reimagining systems beyond the Linear Consumption Economy. We equip students with the resources and tools necessary to holistically understand the Global Waste Crisis and lead solutions on their campuses. Collectively, we can build a world beyond waste.

PLAN cultivates student leadership in alignment with the broader Zero Waste and Environmental Justice movements. PLAN positions students as leaders on their college or university campuses and supports them to become life-long changemakers. We recognize student power as a critical component to the just transformation of campuses and of the broader society. PLAN leverages student power in order to build solutions to the Waste Crisis. Working in collaboration with our movement partners, we address the Linear Consumption Economy at each of the Points of Intervention. Together, we are working to actualize thriving circular economies rooted in the intrinsic value and self-determination of people and the planet.
