The Project:  Animation Explaining the Negative Effects of Plastics on Our World

From the Student:

“I started by researching the toll plastic waste has taken on our local communities and sea life. I have developed a good understanding at how plastic is becoming a large-scale problem even though it serves a helpful purpose in everyday life. The information I gathered is frightening–if we do not decide to change the ways we use and dispose of plastic. I am working on different ways to educate my community. I have started with an animated video, which is just the beginning of the ways I hope to have a positive impact on my community by inspiring others to take action on the global issue.”
