Plastics Free Day a success!

Dear Editor,

This is to everyone who participated in the inaugural Tioga County Plastics Free day! It was wonderful talking to the people who browsed the exhibits; watching the kids ace the ‘recycle/no recycle’ activity; seeing the diversity of recycled artifacts – jewelry, art, and clothing.  

The event was a success. We were able to raise awareness of the seriousness of the plastics issue, and how, by focusing on single-use plastic, small changes can make a huge difference. 

A special recognition to Taylor Garbage, Katie’s Kreations, Owego Rotary Club, and Carolyn Campbell and The Walk up Gallery. We thank you for the support provided by you and your organization.

Looking forward to next year’s event!
