“Then, I learned about the environment and the ecosystem, and discovered we’re putting out so many CO2 emissions, creating plastic for agriculture and even for processed meats. We start to overheat the planet, melt ice caps, and water levels start to rise. It’s only getting worse,” he continues.

Smith adds of his quest to save the planet: “If you combine a lot of plastic together and melt it down, it almost becomes cinder block. You can use trash to create an entirely new structure.”

“I feel like it can spark a new industry: I’m trying to make and create so many things out of recycled plastic,” he explains. “If you raise the price of plastic on the ground and in the oceans, more people will begin to pick up trash.”
