         The impact we have on our planet often goes unnoticed but the daunting truth is our planet will not hold the same beauty for our grandchildren as it does for us. As a community of young adults we are endowed with the responsibility of enacting sustainable measures as we graduate, join the work force, and eventually settle down with a family. While recycling may seem like a relatively small measure, it is in fact the domino effect that we hope to convey. Recycling does not simply remove trash from landfills but lowers the need for plastic to be harvested, aluminum to be extracted, and forests to be, well, deforested. Have you ever heard that if you smile more often, more people will smile at you? Although not proven, if you recycle, the people around you are more likely to as well. This is but a grain of salt in the big picture, but small movements can influence large ripples.

       To put this state of emergency in perspective, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch currently covers an estimated surface area of 1.6 million square kilometers. That is 1,600,000 squared kilometers.. The size of Texas is 695,600 square kilometers. There is an island of garbage more than twice the size of Texas. 

Please share.
