“My advocacy evolves around plastic use around the world. Plastic is one of the worlds biggest issues, although plastic is a reusable resource, but is oftener found in the nature, and ends eventually in the ocean,” she said in a statement.
“The use we have of plastic around the world, has participated to tare the ecosystem significantly. In order to rebuild our ecosystem to the way it was before, we as human beings, are going to have to make some drastic changes in the way we use plastic.”
