We are 2 young brothers called Amal and Aahan from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, who are concerned about the devastating impact plastic is having on our fragile environment.
Our story began during a family holiday on the beautiful island of Kefalonia during the summer of 2018. The harbour in Argostoli is famous for its Caretta turtles. Whilst walking along the harbour, we noticed a plastic cup and straw fall from an overflowing bin and being blown towards the water. Angrily, one of us ran and picked it up. It was on the basis of this that our father set us a challenge to do something about this growing problem.
In a bid to help with this problem, we have set a venture and campaign that aims to raise awareness about the impacts of plastic pollution and provides alternatives to plastic straws.
