Our story

We are two friends from Georgia Tech

                                  who believe in sustainable development, art and education

We're focusing on plastic pollution because it can be tremendously reduced with simple actions

We began our journey the summer of 2017 and were inspired by the stars of the GA Aquarium: whale sharks

 

We are building a collective impact: gathering a network of actors to instill lasting behavior changes in Atlanta

Everything we are doing is open source, so that other cities might recreate the project

 

A lot of support came our way from many members of the Atlanta community, and we are proud to present our amazing team
