As I go on this journey, it is really my children and my little patients leading me to where I need to go. They are the ones who immediately understand the importance of their pediatrician picking up ocean plastic. They are the ones convincing their parents to “Skip the Straw” to save the sea turtles. They are the ones who contribute all the beautiful art to our blog https://drplasticpicker.com/splash-by-daniela-aged-11-wins-our-turtle-is-our-spirit-animal-drawing-contest-reusable-grocery-tote-bags-coming-soon/, and come out to our beach clean ups to physically clean the earth they will inherit https://drplasticpicker.com/feb-office-beach-clean-up-final-results/. The children are leading this movement and know how to fix the world. They were the ones that taught me about Ecosia, the search engine that plants trees https://drplasticpicker.com/ecosians-drplasticpicker-has-always-liked-alien-like-names-change-your-search-engine-to-ecosia-they-plant-trees-you-become-an-ecosian/. So one of my little kindergarten patients told me about her Reuse-It club that meets on Tuesdays at school.
