Action Team Update

One of the recent Plastic Reduction Action Team projects was a letter to major grocery stores. We shared our concern about the single use plastic bottles which are privalent in their stores and end up in our environment as needless plastic waste. We suggested that they prominately display re-usuable water bottles to purchase and install water bottle filling stations. One members idea, "create clubs for children who can fill out a record sheet with filling station stamps and offer a small reward".
