Bio:  

Carter and Olivia hail from Atlanta GA where they attend the  Rising Star Montessori Academy.  They are both the founders of a nonprofit organization called  One More Generation  (OMG), which they started back in 2009 in an effort to clean up our environment and help save endangered species for at least  One More Generation¦ and beyond.

OMG  was initially started to teach more kids around the world that we need to care for endangered species.  Shortly after starting their company, the BP Gulf oil spill happened and the two set out to try and help.  They spent four months collecting badly needed animal rescue supplies and then on Olivia's eighth birthday, the family drove 11.5 hours down to the region and spent five days  delivering their supplies  and helping out.  It was there that they learned first hand that plastic pollution was an even bigger threat to the animals than all the oil spilt globally each year.

Upon their return, the two set out to educate themselves on the issue of plastic pollution and six months later they launched their week-long  Plastic and Recycling Awareness Curriculum,which is now available to schools across the country.  The goal of the curriculum is to educate and empower the students so they could teach their parents concerning the issue and start applying what they learned in their homes and throughout the community.

...to be completed.
