Andrew Almack took part in the IMPACT! Sustainability Champions Training program in Vancouver in 2013. Andrew has since gone on to spearhead the program Plastics For Change.

When I was attending the impact champion’s conference, I had no idea that the project I was working on would become part of a global movement.

The Social Plastic movement is a movement demanding companies to use recycled plastic that reduces both plastic pollution and poverty.

Positively IMPACTING my world!

A few months back I had the amazing opportunity to part take in the IMPACT! Sustainability Champions Training PLUS in Ottawa. The goal of this training is for participants to deepen their sustainability understanding, enhance their confidence as young leaders, and become empowered with the tools and support to develop and launch successful sustainability projects and social enterprises in their region.
