Paris Plummer’s passion for the environment and global environmental sustainability drives her to practice what she preaches.
The 17-year-old South River High School senior became a vegan last year after studying the negative environmental effects of food industries.
“It wasn’t that hard to adopt a vegan diet,” she said. “I had a goal in mind.”
Her goal included installing a vegetable garden in the backyard of her family’s Edgewater home. She also purchased some lumber, borrowed a saw and built a compost pile.
