Jessie Stephenson goes to the John Stainer School in Blockley, Southeast London. She's only seven (7) years old, and her passion for art means she goes through a lot of Crayola felt-tip colored pens. Recently, she learned that Crayola has a recycling scheme for these pens in the United States, but not yet in Great Britain. So she started a petition asking Crayola UK to give its British customers a recycling scheme too.
"I really love using Crayola pens," she says, "but I don't want to use them now that I know the impact on the environment. I care about the environment because we live here, and if we wreck it, we don't get a second chance. So who would sign her petition? Mom and Dad? Maybe Grandma and Uncle Pete? So far, she's collected almost 70,000 signatures, and counting.
