Seven-year-old Cameron may not have super powers, but his actions help change the future. As part of his scout promise challenge, Cameron committed to collect plastic bags and divert them from landfill. In total, he has collected 15 large boxes of plastic bags. Not content with just collecting, Cameron started investigating why and how plastic bags should be recycled. His main concern is how plastic bags affect wildlife when they’re not recycled, so he’s taken his challenge further.
By writing to his school principal, Cameron has successfully motivated The Knox School to begin collecting flexible plastics. “When you throw things away, they don’t go away!” Cameron said. Good on you, Cameron! The world needs more superheroes like you!
