RAISE AWARENESS AND MAKE CHANGE.                                                    
Justin and his pen pals began sharing their work on social media to bring awareness to our world’s plastic pollution problem.  In "parallel" they upcycled over 8,000 bottles into things such as flower planters, plastic bottle animals, plastic bottle cap art, a cap path, earrings, and they even made a a fisherman’s boat out of 600 plastic bottles.   Now they are inspiring youth to use reusable bottles through their reusable water bottle projecct.

PLASTIC POLLUTION COALITON

Plastic is a major contributor to climate change.  99% of plastic is made from fossil fuels, so more single-use plastic means more fossil fuel extraction, production, and greenhouse gas emissions- and more serious impacts to our health and planet.  As of 2020, the U.S. plastics industry is responsible for at least 232 million tons of CO2e gas emissions per year. This amount is equivalent to the average emissions from 116 average sized (500 megawatt) coal fired power plants. Please hear our 10 Calls of Action to regulate waste management, eliminate toxic substances and develop solutions that acknowledge plastic’s role in global warming.
