You CAN make a difference

There are many people around the world trying to have an impact on global warming but it is really impressive when children make a difference.

Teenager Alex Lin has been committed to helping end the e-waste problem. He has done everything from recycling 300,000 lbs of waste to helping pass a bill in Rhode Island to ban the dumping of e-waste.

When Californians Merit Leighton and Marlowe Peyton learned about the effects of plastic pollution, they began an effort to put a stop to it. They began Plastic Patrol and started to raise awareness about how every person's actions make a difference. Right now, Plastic Patrol is filming a series of videos to show simple ways of reducing plastic waste such as reusing water bottles.

Alex and the two girls are just three of the many kids around the world trying to end climate change. It goes to show that everyone has an impact on our terrestrial planet. To find more children making an impact on global warming, visit the link.
