“A 14-year-old girl is leading state efforts to stop plastic pollution. A Cumming native, Hannah Testa said she first saw how much of a problem plastic pollution is when she watched a Netflix documentary with her mom. She said plastic doesn’t biodegrade like many other items we use in our everyday lives. Instead, it photo-degrades, breaking down into small pieces but never disappearing. She said the small pieces become very toxic and are often eaten by fish, which gets back into our food chain. ”
