Angelina Amerigo, Miss Midwest
One Bottle, One Straw, One Bag at a Time

Angelina was crowned 2nd Runner Up in the 2020 Miss Minnesota.  Just last month, she was crowned Miss Midwest.  As a part of her Miss America Scholarship Program, Melinda is speaking publicly about her One Bottle, One Straw, One Bag at a Time program to work towards reducing single use plastics.

Join us to hear Angelina Amerigo, current Midwest, speak about her social impact passion of reducing our use of single use plastic.  

This is Angelina's message - One person one day at a time makes a difference.  Personally reducing your use of single use plastics will contribute to stopping the inflow of plastics into our oceans.  It's not enough to recycle because more and more plastic is produced.  Curbing your usage in the first place is the key.  Just think, if the 1.2 million Rotarians world-wide simply refused to use plastic bottles it would be a significant start to altering what has been accepted as the norm.
