Youth-Initiated Advocacy

One More Generation (OMG), a child-founded nonprofit dedicated to the preservation of endangered species, communities, and the environment, was featured in the Winter 2016 Childhood Explorer (http://www.childhoodexplorer.org/one-more-generation) and at the 2016 Global Summit on Childhood in Costa Rica.

OMG has launched a new pledge campaign—"OneLessStraw." The goals of the campaign are to create awareness about the danger to the environment posed by the current rate of discarding 500,000,000 plastic straws per day, and to encourage people to refrain from plastic straw use during the month of October.
