Together with Young Ambassadors we create impact

Our Young Ambassadors are talented young people who, like EndPlasticSoup, are committed to fighting plastic pollution and creating a better environment for all of us. We want to make them part of our EndPlasticSoup network. They will be our future leaders and deserve our support. We will support the activities and projects of the young activists.
