Scarlett’s Superstars: Miles Fetherston-ReschBy Anne Cissel
Kids like you can make a difference for wildlife and the environment. Meet some inspiring young heroes who have turned their love of animals into action!
Miles Fetherston-Resch (age 10) loves the ocean. He grew up on the Gulf Coast of Florida, and he always wanted to take care of ocean life. At first, he began donating his allowance to groups that help protect the ocean. Then, he started a business called Kids Saving Oceans, which sells environmentally friendly products made from recycled materials. So far, he’s raised $30,000 to help clean up the oceans.
Miles also teaches other kids about protecting the ocean. He hosted “Earth Week” at his school, where he encouraged students to produce less trash. On Earth Day (April 22), Miles gave out reusable metal straws and convinced his school to stop handing out plastic ones. Miles wants all kids to know that they can make a difference in helping to protect our oceans. To honor all his hard work, he recently won the Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes. This extraordinary kid is certainly making waves!
