About PROJECT PLASTICK
Welcome to a bold new way of standing up to the excessive plastick consumption and pollution that’s overwhelming our earth and infiltrating our bodies (ick). Together, we spend a month plastick-free to tune in to our surroundings, scrutinize habits, shift assumptions, and explore creative alternatives.
Consumer demand is powerful. You are powerful.
There’s a 90% chance you have microplasticks swirling in your bloodstream.
40% of the ocean surface area is covered in plastick trash.
1M plastick bags are used per minute worldwide…for an average of 15 minutes, then tossed.
Plastick takes 500-1,000 years to degrade…into micro-plastick.
We’re two sisters from Pasadena, California. We love challenges and and we hate waste (ick).
One of us studied political science and works with media and tech startups in New York City.
One of us studied environmental science and works in renewable energy in Washington DC.
We organized the Project PlastICK challenge to raise awareness, rethink our relationship with waste, and empower our friends to make lasting choices that heal planet and people.
