Chartrand to speak about plastic wastes

Emily Chartrand will speak on plastic wastes on April 27 at Summerland Middle School.

Chartrand recently spent her spring break on Midway Island in the South Pacific Ocean.

She was chosen to be the voice of youth with a group of environmental media artists who were filming a documentary about the plastic pollution in the oceans and the state of the albatrosses which are dying from ingesting plastics.

“It is a huge tragedy that serves as a global warning signal to us to be aware of our careless use of plastics.

Chartrand’s blog is available at http://emilysmidwayjourney.blogspot.com/.

She will share her story on April 27 at 7:30 p.m. at Summerland Middle School.
