Devin Thorpe Interview

Devin Thorpe is an activist who has a show called 'Your Mark on the World'. On this show, episodes of which are posted on YouTube and, Thorpe interviews people who are making positive change in their communities. Andrew and Mac of Plastic~Free Town and their sixth-grade social studies teacher, Ms. Ferringo, were asked to be on the show.

In April of 2019, Devin Thorpe's interview of this organization's founding members was posted. May of that year, Andrew and Mac were awarded the Changemaker of the Month award. An article summarizing their work up to that point was posted in on 'Your Mark on the World's website the next month, along with a link to the interview.

Now with three more members and more than a year since Andrew and Mac appeared on Devin Thorpe's show, Plastic~Free Town continues to create change in Highland Park. We are so grateful for Devin Thorpe's recognition of our work which kick-started what PFT is today. Check out our other blog posts to see what we've accomplished!
