Less plastic waste, healthier oceans

After students at Mann Elementary learned how much plastic ends up in the ocean, and the harmful effects it has on marine life, they tried not to use single-use plastic for 30 days. In culmination of the school’s efforts, students attended an assembly by “Ocean” Annie Crawly on June 8, World Oceans Day.
