Green Teens Who Inspire Me

A few months ago, I received an email from Henry Han, a teenager in Houston, TX. He created the original artwork you see with this blog, and I think it is amazing! Through his own creative lens, he depicts both the peril of environmentally irresponsible behavior and the bright future we can look forward to if we treat the planet with care. If you like Henry's artwork as much as I do, you can view his gallery at http://hequalstohenry.deviantart.com/gallery/. Henry, you are a green teen who inspires me!

Ahsan Khan is another green teen making the world a better place. He wrote to me on the Go Green Face Space on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/group.php?gid=6566461086

Hi! I am currently a High School Senior at Kennesaw Mountain High School in Kennesaw, GA... I am planning a "Green Week" for the week of April 20th and helped get my school registered for the Go Green Initiative. I think this program is great and I am happy that my school is a part of it!For my Green Week event, I and the rest of our National Honor Society will be encouraging our new recycling program as well as passing out reusable water bottles and shopping bags to the students. I will be speaking to the faculty at my school soon to help them get involved. I am glad that I stumbled upon the GGI and I have gathered a number of ideas for my event through it! Thanks for everything that you do!

Henry and Ahsan, thank you so much for writing to me, and for using your talents to make your world a greener, cleaner place!
