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
