WHY WE DO IT

A Message From the Founder

The Terracore Plastic Company was created to prevent impoverished children from suffering. When I was 17, I visited India for my boss’s wedding. While there, I learned that the thick smog covering the country was created by one thing: burnt plastic. The poverty level is so high that people must resort to burning potentially dangerous waste just to survive. After seeing this, I did a significant amount of research into the effects of plastic, and even did a school presentation on how we can all try to fix the root issue. While researching, I learned that microplastics, no matter from which polymer they are made, can cross the blood-brain barrier, and can cause disabilities in children akin to those caused by lead. Although I am not disabled, I have grown up and lived in some less than ideal circumstances. As someone who once lacked power in bad situations, I cannot tolerate a future in which poverty-stricken children are made disabled and powerless due to the ignorance of the global population. Can you? Giving people opportunity is the reason why Terracore Plastic Co was created. With the right chemistry techniques, a clear vision, and a dedicated team, we can, together, prevent widespread suffering of the less fortunate. Together, we can directly take action to make the planet a better, healthier, and happier place to live.
