I’ve been producing these 30-second “audio postcards” for a segment on Atlanta Public Radio, WABE. Each story highlights a person participating in a cultural event, a hobby, their own job, or telling the oral history of an Atlantan landmark. In this “Atlanta Sounds,” my editor, Dave Barasoain, visited Smoke Rise Elementary in Stone Mountain, GA and asked some 3rd and 4th grade students about the right and wrong way to wash your hands. By “right way” and “wrong way,” the kids refer to the amount of water being going down the drain.
When I was a kid, Nickelodeon’s “Big (Green) Help” turned me onto water conservation. I’m not sure where these kids are hearing the message today, but they clearly get it. Recently I’ve been visiting a few Clean Air Campaign-affiliated schools and speaking with students just like the ones you hear here. Can’t wait.
