Graphic of the Day

Switch out the plastic for something less drastic.

The below image comes from Erika Vela, a student at Eastern Washington University. Erika contacted us saying that she and some fellow classmates were working on a project on Plastic Bag awareness. The project, for her ITGS 400 Journeys in Leadership capstone course, was described to us as, "informing society about the negative impacts of using plastic bags by providing facts and statistics for how much plastic bags are used, the impact on the environment, and ways we can minimize the consumption of plastic bags using taxing on the bags, encouraging people to use canvas bags, and recycling."

Seeing how DTE are not only proud alums of EWU, but also proud alums of this particular leadership course, we're pleased to help Erika and her class spread the word!
