I’m Susan and I’m here for a few reasons:

  1. I’m passionate about plastic pollution
  2. I’m taking an Online Writing for Social Change class and this site is part of a developing project
  3. I’d like to share some of what I know and what I want to know

My passion for plastic pollution started with a high school science fair filtering miroplastic 7 years ago– and here I am still curious and passionate. Plastic blows my mind for a few reasons, but mainly because the stuff is built to last forever, and is oftentimes only used for minutes. What is our obsession for convince costing our resources, our ecosystem, and ourselves?
