Essex Students take on Plastic

Amy Downing's fifth grade students at Thomas Fleming School in Essex Junction have been researching the effects of plastic on the environment and created these great videos! Check them out:
Plastic Bags - It’s Time to Care
The Plastic Problem

The students said: "We have learned that our reliance on plastic has gone too far, and we need to make some serious changes in our lifestyles. As responsible citizens, we need to use reusable bags when shopping and start recycling the plastic bags we currently use. We created two videos to bring awareness to the problem, and to teach others how to help."
