Hannah Testa, Plastic Pollution Awareness, Cumming, GA

The TPP seed grant made a big difference to my project. Because of our restricted household funds, which had been used to fund limited work on plastic pollution education, we were able to dream big and have the funds to make a significant impact. To provide a couple of examples, without the seed grant we probably wouldn’t have been able to travel around the state to talk to citizens and businesses about plastic pollution, and we probably wouldn’t have been able to attend a plastic pollution conference in CA, either. Additionally, two of the eye-catching things we showcased on plastic pollution awareness day at the Georgia State Capitol involved expenditures that I am sure we wouldn’t have been able to fund without the seed grant. This included artwork from ocean scientist Bonnie Monteleone from North Carolina as well as a “traveling quilt” that involved material and labor expenses. These two items, which comprised 50% of the total seed grant, helped to make the event on February 15th extra special and were instrumental in attracting public and media attention.
