I became simply fed up with the plastic waste, which is accumulating not just in my town, but all over the country.
Waste - particularly plastic waste - is very damaging to the environment. It can take years to decompose, and damages wildlife.
I decided to do something with this waste - to use the things people throw away to create something different, rather than just waiting for it to rot.
My group of Fixers and I teamed up with Tavistock artist, Maggi Squire, to turn hundreds of unwanted bags into a giant bird sculpture, which was displayed at Drake Circus Shopping Centre in Plymouth.
The sculpture is now the centrepiece of an exhibition of recycled art at the London Wetlands Centre, and viewed by hundreds of visitors each day.
The influence of my message has led to the Wetlands Centre itself changing their bag policy in their gift shop and introducing jute bags instead of plastic.
Soon after my Fix, I travelled to London to accept the South-West Regional Eco Award as part of the V National Awards at the O2 Arena.
I'm proud of what I achieved, and I hope that I contributed to changing views on the environment among other young people.
