Hello, my name is Lisa. My 6th grade teacher got me interested in recycling in 1970, during the first Earth Day. Our class cleaned up a nearby stream and park. We recycled newspapers and glass bottles (really wasn’t plastics back then) and with the money we earned, she taught us to invest in the stock market. I love my teacher! Anyway, ever since 6th grade, I have been recycling and cleaning up public places. My biggest issues are plastic bags and single use plastic bottles! I work for Salt Lake County, and I try my best to educate and encourage my co-workers to do what they can to recycle. I am excited to be a part of this class and to learn more and to meet others who are passionate about recycling.
