Hannah Alper has been an environmental activist since she was nine. “I started a blog,” she says. “And my parents said it had to be about something other than me or how mkuch I loved Justin Bieber.” Thee only thing she was really passionate about was animals, so Alper focused on habitat loss and deforestation.
“At first, I was devestated,” recalls Alper, now 18. “But I turned that devestation into motivation.”
Her blog, a later book and her current online activity (@thatHannahAlper) focus on how little acts can make a difference to the environment.
“This is an issue that affects us all,” she says. “We’re living on the earth and we have to do all we can to protect it.”
