IV Foam Free for the Sea Intern (must be a current UCSB student)
flexible, 8 hours/week, May 2019 – July 2019
$11/hour plus mileage reimbursement
Training is provided. Start date is early May.
About the project:
Community Environmental Council (CEC) and Santa Barbara Channelkeeper (SBCK) have partnered on single-use plastic reduction in our region for more than a decade. Working together, they have successfully advocated for bans on plastic bags, Styrofoam food containers, the straw/stirrer ban in the City of Santa Barbara and Carpinteria’s recently adopted single-use plastic reduction policy. For the IV Foam Free for the Sea project, CEC and SBCK are exploring a pilot project for reusable to-go food containers, such as clamshells or soup cups, to be used at participating restaurants in Isla Vista.
The Isla Vista Foam Free for the Sea Intern position is supported by CEC and SBCK’s UCSB Coastal Fund grant. The intern will assist with conducting a feasibility study which will include outreach and surveying local businesses, and compiling a feasibility report on reusable to-go containers in IV businesses.
The IV Foam Free Intern will assist Channelkeeper and Community Environmental Council with community outreach, business outreach, data collection, compiling and synthesizing research in a feasibility report.
