Celebrating Earth Day at the Havener Center

The Missouri Science and Technology Eco Miners held their Earth Day celebration "plastic is not fantastic," regarding humanitiy's impact on the planet we call home, where people were immediately greeted with a replication of Earth.

The focus on deterring single use plastic was the theme of the event at Havener Center on Thursday. Clear recycle bags were packed to the brim with plastic goods, including empty plastic bottles of soda.

The facts drawn in black ink on cardboard attached to the bags, showed how important it is to recycle plastic bottles and work towards making positive impacts on mother nature.

Plastic is a prevailing issue where the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a prime example of how not recycling one's plastic bottles over time can devastate our environment.
