Ms. Martin’s 5th Grade Class

Ms. Martin’s 5th grade Class from Taft Elementary in Lincoln City, presented a plea for help at the May 22, 2017, City Council meeting.

The Class had a simple request that would have a big impact – Ban the use of plastic bags in Lincoln City. The students wrote letters and used a PowerPoint presentation to describe the local environmental impacts of plastic bags.

Great job, Class!
