Lecture: Plastic Pollution – a Global Problem with Local Solutions.
September 17, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The scope of plastic pollution on the planet can be overwhelming to someone who cares about the health of our environment. Understanding the inputs of the issue – from plastics manufacturing to solid waste infrastructure and policy – can provide a way for each of us to make choices, not only with our purchasing power, but with our communication efforts and our actions.
Join Laura Ludwig, director of the Center for Coastal Studies Marine Plastics & Debris Program and self-proclaimed “plastic reduction practitioner”, to learn about regional initiatives addressing plastic pollution, including bag and polystyrene bans, recycling programs, infrastructure and transportation ideas, and policy prospects.
