This is an important message, and awareness campaign, about BPA in receipts.
We welcome Hailee Enriquez, Ali Pinschsmidt, D’Lena Duncan, and Jaylynn Rentas, to talk about the campaign “Don’t Take That Receipt” to bring awareness about the presence of bisphenol-A (BPA) and bisphenol-S (BPS) in receipts.
Jaylynn and Hailee, are youth members of this team, as part of their summer job with Girls Inc. and Career Point, respectively. Ali is the leader of this initiative and a great mentor and media educator for youth in Holyoke.
On this session, we talk about the steps taken to create this campaign, the video as an engagement tool for educating about BPA in receipts, and also the experiences by the participants and their interactions with the public.
There will be an event to spread out the information about this campaign at the Community Room in the Holyoke Public Library, on August 15, 2018.
This is the video, made with local talent.
