Think Globally, Act Locally!

Updated: Mar 19

For my environmental science project for Earth day of 2020, I created this poster for the University of the District of Columbia, The College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Science (CAUSES) and I won the first prize in the category of Advocacy.

Rock Creek Park is in Washington, D.C. where I spend most of my free time with my two, wonderful dogs. It saddens me when I see the plastic pollution floating down the river, especially after a big rainstorm. I am also a volunteer at the park, very often I pick up plastic waste from the river ( bottles, cups, balls, plastic toys, and so on...).

This plastic waste then pollutes the Chesapeake Bay area and the Atlantic Ocean, while harming marine life such as whales, sharks, sea turtles, and killing millions of birds every year.

As humans, we must Think Globally and Act Locally! Let's reduce our single-use plastic waste!
