I am a 12-year-old girl who attends sixth grade at Tomlinson Middle School. I write to tell you about my love for this Earth, and my small step to help protect it.
Last year, as a student at Dwight Elementary School, my grade was assigned the task of designing and making an invention for the school's annual Invention Convention. I created "SipSavers," tags that slip around the neck of a recyclable water bottle, so that you can identify the water bottle as your own. What makes my invention unique is that the tags are biodegradable, as they are made out of seed infused paper. When done with the water bottle, rip off the tag, cover it with soil, and it will grow wildflowers. How cool is that?
