On March 27th 2015, Atlanta CIty Councilman Kwanza Hall Atlanta artist Pam Longobardi and a group of international attendees convened at the Centers for Disease Control to officially proclaim this date as Plastic Reduction Day Atlanta in perpetuity. In recognition of this date, a group of researchers and artists in the Atlanta area have created a pledge drive to reduce the use of single use plastics in restaurants throughout the city. The group hopes that Atlanta businesses will serve their last plastic straw, or better yet, give up single use plastics all together. Plastic Reduction Atlanta is a campaign to enlist Atlanta’s most progressive eateries, organizations and businesses to give up plastic straws in lieu of smarter more eco-friendly alternatives!
Better Bureau supported this important effort, and this team of dedicated artist activists by designing a logo for the campaign. It was printed on transparent stickers that are now proudly displayed in area restaraunts that are actively trying to reduce their impact on the environment.
