Millennium Fellowship Project: Litter Art Project
Every day, America wastes 4.5 pounds of trash per day. I propose a plan to reuse trash and recyclable items so that the trash can be implemented into an art project. The art project will award a participant with creating a statue made of trash that will be on campus for the world to see. The hope is to try and reduce the amount of trash used by students so that we aren't wasting as much on a daily basis.
About the Millennium Fellow
On January 12th, 2016, Joe Lofton achieved Eagle Scout Rank. For him, that was the greatest achievement of his life, and to this day thinks that there is nothing too difficult for him. In his life so far, he has climbed mountains, traversed oceans, and led projects to help others. He plans to keep doing these amazing feats and more.
