The Parallel Projects is about working together “in parallel”.
Working together makes a huge impact. This worldwide movement gives others a sense of belonging by working “in parallel” on projects that help the planet. The Parallel Projects has gone from awareness to focusing on creating habit changes in hopes to get youth worldwide to avoid single-use plastics when possible and use reusable products to create a cleaner world.
Our mission is to find solutions to the Plastic Pollution problems we are facing with our communities in the USA and Zanzibar and worldwide.
Our goal is to work in collaboration with other organizations and companies to promote a healthier environment focusing on education, environment, and health with the objective of finding solutions through innovation, partnerships, and youth engagement.
FOUNDER OF THE PARALLEL PROJECTS
Justin has loved frogs for as long as he can remember. So when he learned that nearly one-third of the earth’s frogs species are in danger of extinction, he sprung into action and began raising money for his long-legged friends. But frogs were just the beginning. Justin’s mission to save amphibians led him on a crusade to conserve 30 percent of the planet by 2030 AND to help solve the global plastic pollution crisis.
Justin pursues his goals through two organizations. When he was in only kindergarten, Justin started Justin's Frog Project, to help restore and build wetlands. And now his Project continues its mission and has protected over 80 acres of rainforest in Ecuador.
At eight years old, Justin met Dr. Jane Goodall, and she inspired him with just a few words. She told him that it is projected by the year 2050, if we don’t make changes today, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. On Earth Day 201?, Justin received a special message from a 22 year old boy that lives over 8,000 miles away. The Parallel Projects was born.
