Shell Helps Nonprofit Turn Discarded Plastic Into Prosthetic Limbs
Date:10/5/2018

Shell’s Puget Sound Refinery recently presented the Million Waves Project, an Anacortes, Wash.-based nonprofit, with a grant to purchase a high-tech machine that turns plastic into prosthesis. The Million Waves Project collects and processes marine debris that washes ashore in Washington State. The organization then processes the usable plastic and turns it into 3D printed prosthetic limbs for children and adults.

“We are so excited to partner with this incredible nonprofit that aims to help serve the millions of people in need of prosthetic limbs,” said Brenna Clairr O’Tierney, an external relations adviser at Shell’s Puget Sound Refinery. “Our vision at the refinery is to proudly fuel life in the Pacific Northwest for our employees, contractors and our community, and we help bring that vision to life by collaborating with organizations like a Million Waves Project. We can’t wait to see the life-changing impacts that it generates around the world!”

The Million Waves Project is dedicated to closing the loop on marine waste.

“If we can transform a huge problem into something useful to someone then we redefine waste to a resource,” said Chris Moriarity, the executive director of the Million Waves Project.
Million Waves co-founder Laura Moriarity added, “We love that a major energy company like Shell wants to serve as a genuine teammate in our mission to clean up our waterways and make a lasting difference in people’s lives. We are so excited about this partnership and can’t wait to explore more ways to broaden our impact moving forward!”
