Say No to Plastic Bags

Dec 13th, 2011 | By | Category: Uncategorized

Carter and Olivia Ries, 2011 runners up, from Georgia are doing their part to protect the planet by campaigning to reduce the use of plastic bags in the US. Their project entitled “Say No To Plastic Bags,” works to raise awareness about the dangers of plastic bags to the natural world.

So far, they created their own non-profit called One More Generation (OMG), bought the rights to the movie “Bag-it,” launched their “Plastic Awareness Week” curriculum program for elementary schools, and met with their congressman. They have achieved a lot, but they are just getting started. What began in 2010 as an effort to save turtles in the wake of the Gulf oil spill, has blossomed into an ongoing effort to care for the environment for years to come.
