by Phyllis Theermann May 15, 2019 family inspiring middle school students plastic reduction Sunday Volunteer Waste Reduction youth led
Wellesley Middle School student Vaani Kapoor and her sister organized a plastic pick-up day along Route 9 in April. After this event, where Wellesley students picked up 17+ bags of waste in less than a half a mile, Kapoor came to a Sustainable Wellesley event and a Natural Resources Commission meeting to discuss how to expand and sustain these efforts.
Now Kapoor, her family and many amazing Wellesley Middle Schools students will be doing another clean up this Sunday. Please consider joining them on Sunday, May 19th at 9 AM at the Middle School.
“There is unseen plastic all over our town” said Kapoor. “While we are celebrating Wellesley this weekend, the amount of litter will most likely increase. If you would like to help make a change, please join us this weekend for our second monthly plastic pickup,” Kapoor said enthusiastically.
Support this youth-led volunteer effort and show your Wellesley pride by limiting your waste, and picking up during and after the parade and fireworks.
