Plastic Pollution Awareness Day

We are proud to announce our partnership with GA Senator Michael Williams and Hannah Testa from Hannah4Change, along with the State of Georgia, in proclaiming February 15, 2017 as Plastic Pollution Awareness Day at the State Capitol.  This is a major environmental event and will be watched by interested parties across the world.  Hannah and other distinguished guests will be speaking that day at the state Capitol Building in Atlanta and will be joined by leaders and dignitaries from dozens of environmental organizations as the resolution is declared on the Senate Floor.

To make this event a success, we'd like everyone to commit to at least one way they plan to reduce their plastic footprint.  This could be taking reusable bags to the grocery store rather than using plastic bags, or it could be avoiding plastic water bottles.  For restaurants, it could be as simple as switching to paper straws or only giving out straws if a customer requests one.  Restaurants that switch to paper straws will be provided a window decal they can proudly display that shows they care about their diners and what they put on their tables. 

If you plan to come to the event, which is open to the public, go to the State Capitol Building room 123 anytime from 10 am to 2:30 pm.  The resolution will be declared around 11 or 11:30 am.  Guest speakers will be presenting information starting at 1 pm.  And the rest of the day there will be informative and educational exhibits from business leaders and local artists.
