Save the Environment one PLARNit Project at a Time
Melisa Maxey, Entrepreneur, Small Business Owner and community activist, learned about PLARN by accident. While living in Florida, her husband brought home a unique hat he found on the beach. It was made from plastic bags. Soon after, Melisa made her first PLARN beach bag, which she used to pick up trash in the community. Trash pick-up on the beach led to volunteering for a local sea turtle rescue organization and environmental studies. Today, Melisa is driven to educate the general public about the environmental dangers of plastic bags through a program called the PLARNit Project.
