FRES Students Show Support for Plastic Bag Legislation 


The 4th and 5th grade Green Teams have written testimonies to Maryland lawmakers to support HB 1166, which, if passed, will authorize Howard County to impose a fee on disposable plastic bags. The Environment and Transportation Committee will hear testimonies in Annapolis on Tuesday, March 12.  Details of the bill may be found here!


Under the guidance of Mrs. Clawson and Mrs. Hogan the following students prepared the linked testimonies:


5th grade Green Team: Testimony

Grace E., Wilo D., Hiba A., Katie L. 

4th grade Green Team: Testimony

Madhav P., Smrithi K., Antonia C., Daksh B., Jonathan M., Darshan B.


Thank you 4th and 5th grade Green Teams for helping to reduce the use of single-use plastics in Howard County, much of which ends up in landfills or as refuse!
