Plastic Waste Awareness Day
Thursday, February 15th is Plastic Waste Awareness Day. I'm very proud of the student group I mentor, Pelham Eliminates Plastics (PEP) for forging a partnership with our locally owned and supported grocery store, DeCicco & Sons, to generate awareness about the dangers of single-use plastics including bags, water bottles, straws, coffee lids, and more. On 2/15 DeCicco's will only hand out paper bags to its customers, each one stamped with the official PEP sticker in an effort to combat plastic waste, raise public awareness, and tackle this problem at the source: the consumer. When the consumer makes better choices, the planet wins.
