The Problem

Students at Selden Middle School will be speaking in favor of a ban on carry out plastic bags in Suffolk County, New York. They were invited after writing letters to local representatives about the need to reduce plastic consumption to protect our native wildlife.

Our Plan

Our project will help to ban the use of plastic carry out bags in retail stores in Suffolk County on Long Island. Students will be speaking on March 22, 2016 to legislature in favor of such a ban.
