If you are looking for a way to get involved (and make a big impact), I'd love it if you'd start your own Plastic Pollution Awareness Day in your home state. Over time, I'd like to see every state have its own Plastic Pollution Awareness Day on February 15th. I will give you the materials you need so you don't have to reinvent the wheel, and you can always contact me for additional advice.
Here are templates you can use if needed:
Draft message to communicate to your political representatives
Draft Resolution that you and your political representatives can modify
Draft press release you can alter to get the word out about the big event
Have you heard this saying before? Now, more than ever, citizens need to speak up and take action. I am sure you have said to yourself, "Gosh, I wish I could do something about that" or "I wish something could be done about that". Well, you can! As my 3rd grade teacher always said, "If you dream big and work hard, anything is possible". Don't let anything stop you from speaking up! In fact, if you want to get involved and try something that is easy to do, follow me on Facebook and Twitter and share/retweet any content that you feel strongly about. That way, more and more people will become aware of the issues around us that are affecting our planet. That's probably the easiest way to get involved that I know of!
We are making a traveling quilt with approximately 580 pledges from people who want to reduce their plastic footprint. This quilt is 6'x8' and will be shown at the State Capitol Building on February 15 and other locations across the state and country. We are looking for people to develop pledges, along with their name and city/state. We will then transcribe the pledges onto individual fabric squares. Be a part of this journey by making your pledge in the comment section below or emailing us at email@example.com 🌎
