Flossie is planning to travel to one of the world’s dirtiest rivers to learn more about solving the plastic problem

Irelands rising star and young climate activist Flossie Donnelly is now considered Ireland’s answer to Greta Thunberg.

And it’s just been announced that she will feature in a new programme on RTÉjr’s My Story: The Beach Cleaner.

The programme will document her travel to some of the world’s dirtiest rivers, in a bid to learn more about solving the plastic pollution problems in our oceans today.

Flossie, who has already become a household name as climate change activist, has just started secondary school, but has no plans to ditch passion and interest in global warming, something which has remained with her since she was seven years old.

She was quoted recently in the Irish Sunday Mirror stating: “My family and I were in Thailand on holidays and one day my mum and dad had gone hiking and they had spotted rubbish floating in the sea next to the marine life.”

“They told me about it and that’s the moment I asked my mum ‘could we save the planet?’ Two years later I had started a climate change group.” she continued.
