Dylan Torrance, 2014 graduate, recently addressed the Delaware State Legislature in support of a bag bill that would add a 5c tax to the use of plastic bags in stores.
Dylan currently attends St. Andrew’s School in Delaware where he is finishing his sophomore year. He is a member of the school’s Environmental Stewards Club and led the drive to gather signatures from among the school’s students and faculty. Due to the number of signatures gathered in support of this bill, the club was invited to send a representative to speak to the subcommittee of the Delaware State Legislature, and Dylan volunteered to testify as the representative.
The subcommittee passed House bill 202 which expands upon the existing at-store recycling program in effect, the purpose of which is to clean up our communities and watersheds, reduce storm water and trash management costs to taxpayers, and promote the health and safety of watersheds and wildlife.
