Charles Orgbon III, Georgia Teen, Launches 'Greening Forward,' Spawns Network Of Earth-Saving Clubs

Three years ago -- while still in middle school -- Charles Orgbon III founded an environmental advocacy group called Greening Forward.

"In 2008, I noticed my school's littering problem and started the first Earth Savers Club to help address that issue," said Charles, now 15 and a sophomore at Mill Creek High School. "Then I wanted to show other young people how they could create similar Earth Savers Clubs in their communities as well."
