Abstract

The goal of this project was to determine the feasibility of a plastic reduction certification program in Costa Rica. Through research, interviews, surveys, and cost analysis the project team recommended to the MarViva Foundation the most effective way of structuring and implementing this future program. It was discovered that the attitudes and opinions of Costa Rican business owners and consumers are in favor of reducing single-use plastic consumption through a certification program within businesses, backed by legislative involvement.
