Ten year old GLOBAL environmental activist Lilly Platt is taking an active role in seeking political action against global warming and against plastics. She is a youth ambassador of plastic pollution coalition.
One day I was walking with my grandfather. I think I was eight. Maybe younger. There was something plastic on the ground and I picked it up. My grandpa told me that the plastic will make its way to the ocean over here in Holland.
I started Lilly’s Plastic Pickup because I want to educate and inform the world about the dangers of plastic. It went viral so people are listening and reacting. I’ve been all over the world cleaning beaches and meeting government officials. I even met with the prime minister of Curaçao.
Please refuse to use plastic and please pick up rubbish.
