My name is Hope Jones.
I am ten years old.
I am going to save the world.
Hope Jones’ New Year’s resolution is to give up plastic, and she’s inspiring others to do the same with her website, When she realises her local supermarket seems to stock more unnecessary plastic than food, she makes it her mission to do something about it. She may be just one ten-year-old with a homemade banner, but with enough
determination, maybe Hope Jones really can save the world.
