Plastics Project Lead
Middlesex County Academy - Class of 2021
Purva has cared about the environment for her entire life, but at the age of 11, she started reading about the issues the planet faces and was inspired to take action. Purva is the co-founder and team leader of Bye Bye Plastic Bags New Jersey, a chapter of the global movement to ban single-use plastics. She has learned so much from environmental advocacy and through her involvement in NJSSC. Purva is enthusiastic about innovation as a tool for change and plans to pursue engineering to help create a more sustainable future. In her free time, Purva enjoys writing poetry, singing, and curling up with a book.
