Olivia and Carter were recently invited to conduct a workshop about their Plastic Awareness Week curriculum program for the attendees at the 2012 Georgia Science Teachers Association Conference held at the Hyatt Hotel in Atlanta GA.
OMG’s message to the congregation is one of hope. We outline why each church community should reevaluate their current program offerings to ensure we are all focusing on the fact that as stewards of God’s creations it is up to use to protect the earth and all He has given to us.

As we learn more and more about the affects of plastic pollution on our environment and on the many species that share this earth with us, we have become more aware of how much trash is just lying around in our community. If you take the time to look, you too will be amazed to see how much trash we are just throwing on the ground.

The kids were all so intently listening to Carter and Olivia and each one of them had suggestions of what could be done to ensure this doesn’t continue to happen. We heard many of the students say that they would be telling their parents, and even their school teachers about what our plastic pollution is doing to the environment and how they wanted to help be the solution to the problem.
