I am at the Rachel Carson Homestead listening to Mark, one of the members of the YERT team give a presention about their trip. YERT stands for Your Environmental Road Trip. The team has spent the past 52 weeks traveling to all 50 states to talk to people about the environment.

Youn can see many of these videos and learn more about their trip at YERT.com

Here are some facts from the beginning of their presentation (they are still presenting as I am typing this)

– gas prices ranged from $2.70 to $4.10
– plastic bags were starting to be banned
– lead in toys became a big issue
– bottled water is also going out of fashion and we have learned that even some of the reusable plastic bottles are not good for your health.

Apparently they also have all of the trash from their trip and it is on display here. I will try to find that display and post a picture.
