Dylan Thiessen's Plastic Bag Project
Recycle, bags, ocean plastic, solution
My name is Dylan Thiessen. I'm a senior at Hoggard High School in its IB program, and I've always cared about the environment. I was inspired to create the Plastic Bag Project when I learned for the first time that plastic bags were recyclable, but not with normal recycling, because it was completely new information to me. Knowing the pollution threat that plastic bags posed, I decided to help raise awareness that they could be recycled, and to make it easier for everyone to recycle their bags.
The mission of the Plastic Bag Project is to facilitate the recycling of plastic bags through increased awareness and recycling locations. I am looking for donations that not only support my project to purchase collection containers but a portion of the proceeds will go toward the work Plastic Ocean Projects. Please consider any size donation to help cover the bag bins I will install and manage around Wilmington, NC.
