In the fall of 2017, four seventh-grade girls from Ridgway Colorado formed a group called “Carry On!  Ridgway Reuses.”   Their goal was to ban single-use plastic bags in their hometown and address the global dangers of plastics.  Over a year later, on December 12th, 2018, the Ridgway Town Council voted to adopt a Single Use Plastic Bag Ban Ordinance, effective March 1st.  KVNF’s Ali Lightfoot spoke with these young activists about their efforts.
