Pollution from single-use plastics harms our planet, our wildlife, and our own health. Much of this pollution comes from plastic items we don't need in our lives at all - from plastic grocery bags to polystyrene (aka Styrofoam) takeout food containers. The plastics project aims to push forward both local and statewide legislation to ban single-use plastic bags. Currently, we are focused on forming key partnerships with other organizations, such as ANJEC and the Plastic Pollution Coalition, & taking action for a state plastics bill to pass through the state Assembly.

Hello everyone! My name is Kat! My entire life I have been passionate about the environment. I'm a member of my school's environmental club, I am on the fundraising team at BBPB NJ, and a massive climate change activist. Alongside that, I always find ways to incorporate my love for our planet into my artwork. Some examples of projects I've done are creating collages and jewelry with plastic waste and drawing the effects of climate change. I'm so excited to work with Ava in this position! Feel free to reach out whenever!
