Chicago students on board

Students across the nation are pitching in to promote Message in a Bottle. As this groundswell continues gaining momentum, we're confident that major shifts in our disposable mentality will follow.....

Here, a group of students from Bell Elementary in Chicago are learning about plastic marine debris, and writing messages to their legislators to express their concern.

We "met" these students on our last Gyre voyage - they followed our blog, and were inspired to do more as a community.

So their green committee decided to support Junk by sponsoring two cases of bottles, organizing a letter writing campaign, and studying marine conservation in their classroom.

A huge thanks to Katherine Miller, the Parent Green Committee, and the wonderful students of Bell Elementary for joining us on this important mission.
