Hustle: How One High Schooler Turned Sustainability into a Side Hustle [Environmental Activism]

– We found a lot of items of clothing. Like we’ll find swim trunks
and jeans and tank tops. And like, where did they
go without their clothes? (upbeat music) We’re at Beach 17 right now. I’m in my room right now. We’re in BK Rot. I do beach clean-ups, library presentations, I rake leaves and put them in bags, plant daffodils, I speak in front of centers, I speak in front of council people. Repaint the park fences and the benches. I set high goals for myself. Not a lot of teenagers
my age really care like, they’ll like throw
whatever they’re drinking on the floor and not really
think twice about it. Like if you’re gonna give them a lecture, they’re probably gonna go on their phones and not listen to you. So I’ll find the way to
relate environmentalism to something that I have to do. So if one of my friends likes the beach, then I’ll be like, “Hey, we can be
environmentalists together!” If you’re not educated you’re
not gonna know what to do. If I’m curious about the environment, or if I’m curious about something else then I will probably go.. and ask questions. Why do you compost? So it’s kind of like an aging process? Why are they in rows? I can teach other people
and I can do it myself. (upbeat music) – A really big balloon. It has ice and water. – I don’t think anyone will
wear it but it’s a nice hat. Hope will get you very
far, I’ve learned that. Because if you have hope, then that will kind of give you a push. I guess to do what you need to do. We once had a plastic bag, it was like a big bag,
like with garbage bag, and it took five of us to pull it out. I know we should be thinking our future, but our present determines our future. Focusing on the present is
gonna carry on behavior, and it’s gonna carry on how we, I guess.. act toward the environment. And that’s how I hustle.

  1. That is so awesome!!! Keep doing what you're doing, it is an absolutely amazing cause and watching this video couldn't have made me any happier๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Š my YouTube channel theme is "spread positivity" and I believe this video is an amazing example of this!! I'm subscribed((:

  2. Ohhh my goodness!!! I really really love what you're doing and I am so proud of you! You're so beautiful, I love your hair and your smile and you are sooooo smart and intelligent! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have always thought of ways to clean up the planet but I have always been stuck at where to begin. I guess it's really as simple as gathering some friends together and educating them on how important it is to clean the plant and just start from there! Other people will see and become interested and want to join, naturally.

  3. I'm so proud of you for standing up for what you believe and for loving your country and planet earlier than most.
