One of the biggest challenges for environmental activists is taking care of plastic. We all know that plastic pollutes our soil, air, and even our ocean and sea waters.

In the past few years, we’ve seen a huge initiative for a strapless living. In Seattle, activists are trying to promote straws made of paper for usage instead of plastic straws.

But they are not alone in the battle. Even little children nowadays know that plastic straws can contribute to world pollution. Listen from the youngest ones.

Molly Steer is just 10 years old, but she already saw the damage that disposable plastics do to the ocean. She had to do something, and she set to convince schools to remove single use plastic straws from tuckshops. In this TED talk, she tries to convince other people to take part and promote action.
