“My Journey to Create the Future of Plastic Recycling”
"Plastic pollution is a global crisis that results in wildlife entrapment, water and food contamination, and human health problems. Globally, only 9% of plastics produced are recycled; the rest is incinerated, landfilled, or exported to developing nations where they often enter marine habitats. At the current accumulation rate, the scientific community predicts there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans by 2050. My name is Miranda Wang and I am a 24 year-old entrepreneur, environmental advocate, and inventor. I have been working with my co-founder Jeanny Yao to create solutions to the plastic problem over the past ten years. "
