Phil Orton | Mapping a Modern MS
Saturday, September 17, 2016
After being struck by how poorly the environment has been treated, Phil Orton, based in Hattiesburg, decided to make a change in his life. Using solar panels for electricity, driving an electric car, and giving others access to renewable energy, Phil is working for a better Mississippi.
“What I’m doing won’t change the world, I understand that, but if a thousand of us did it, it might change the world a little bit or make things a little better… I think what we need to do is to try and put mechanisms in place that will clean that up and make life better for future generations.”-Phil
