Ria Uppapati started a non-profit at 15 years old: Forever Earth, Inc. Bill met Ria and her Mom at a North Marietta Community Garden event and she had a lot to share, so we decided to do an interview.

She is working to reduce plastic locally, starting at her Dad's restaurant (Hemingways). She has also reached out to other businesses to recruit them to use metal plates with paper on top, a step in the right direction to reduce plastic waste.

She is also leading a battery recycling program (September 21th at Tucker park), sponsoring a child's college education in India and getting her classmates to join in.

Busy young woman!
