This paper will address the policy implications of changing materials that are used in our everyday lives. You can choose any material you utilize in your lives, and review the process for substituting this with a more sustainable and ecologically safer material. I expect you to identify at least one legislative action that addresses this material. You will obtain at least 4 scientifically based resources that also suggest substitutions for this material. Then discuss the pros and cons of utilizing alternative materials, and the subsequent effects on the environment, educational needs of the population, and more importantly the economic impact. An example would be as simple as local and state regulations around recycling materials. You should have also reviewed the TED Talk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-yALPEpV4w ) that is listed in your Modules. An example of that is the Wind mills utilized for energy and the impact on our national Eagles species. Another example that I have experienced in Health Care is the recycling of durable products in patient use. Papers will be graded on a rubric, addressing the following points: 1. Discussion of the need to change your material of choice in order to contribute to a more sustainable environment. 2. Review of the steps needed to make change, including possible legislation, costs for implementation, public announcements and education, and how you would obtain the new material. 3. Debate of the pro’s and con’s of making this change in material, including the impact on the consumer. 4. Summary of your review of the literature, including support of your proposal for change. 5. Correct grammar and spelling. Paper is organized and flows in a logical pattern, following MLA guidelines for professional papers.
