A STORY OF PASSION
In the seats of a high school auditorium listening to a classmate's speech about plastic pollution, Michael Arens asked himself, "why has no one solved this issue, and why did it take me this long to hear about it?" This question would engulf him for the years to come. From that day on Michael felt obligated to create a solution.
In the summer of 2017 Michael grew his idea and chased a dream that has resulted in years of development. As the idea grew Michael knew he needed help; he added David to his team to build the machine that will reverse the effects of plastic pollution.
