I reside in South Florida where beaches are littered with plastic. I am fed up with the recycling system here and want to do my part to rid the environment of plastic by collecting and upcycling single use plastic to permanent usuable plastic items. I have a business background and am a naturalist. I feel we have a responsibility to clean up after ourselves as we all in some way are part of this problem. I look forward to making a difference locally and then in other areas of need.
