    • Hi I’m a student at Back of the Yards College in Chicago I honestly really liked your idea. Since a lot of people use social media it’s better to get people to follow it. Yet I think your idea should’ve been more promoted, even though it wasn’t successful there’s things that can still be done. It’s not too late to actually take action and promote your website I would love to get a link. Also we are doing a similar project but ours is to get solar panels in schools. We been stuck to see what else to do, we’ve promoted on facebook but do you think there’s other ways to get it more noticed?

  • I chose the digital activism topic of littering in New York City because I am concerned about the sanitation in New York City. Growing up in NYC, I personally want NYC to be known as the best city in the world

      Dear Ritwika,

      I agree with your claims about wanting NYC to be the best city in the world for sanitation. I think personally that New York is very dirty and has lots of litter everywhere. I am glad you talked about how marine litter effects ocean ecosystems like when you said “As a result of accidentally ingesting this litter, marine species may choke, entangle, starve, or drown.” We all need to make a change in helping to save the marine life and its ecosystems by not littering. We all can do a small deed which will help lead to a bigger change. “These options include: participating in a community clean-up, making sure your trash is secured, recycling and reusing, and spreading the word.” This stood out to me because i love how you gave people options on how they can help save our environment. Thanks for you writing! I look forward to reading more of your posts about litter.
