  • It is estimated that by 2025 there will be one pound of floating plastic garbage in the ocean for every 3lbs of fish in the ocean. That is a lot of plastic! In this information-packed presentation, Heather Trim of Zero Waste Washington will discuss why plastics are a problem and how to reduce our consumption AND impact future production.

    Presenter: Heather Trim

    Heather Trim is the Executive Director of Zero Waste Washington. Zero Waste Washington is a local nonprofit dedicated to reducing plastic pollution in our waterways and compost, promoting producer responsibility to address difficult-to-handle waste, and educating the public about ways we can reuse and recycle all-ready produced plastics in order to limit contamination.


    Tuesdays @ 21 is a free monthly community presentation series providing education and an opportunity for networking and dialogue on a variety of sustainability topics. These dynamic evenings tackle a wide spectrum of regionally-relevant issues ranging from climate change, wildlife and wild spaces, energy independence, agriculture, food production, food justice, and activism using a variety of formats that are sure to inspire and challenge us to action.

    Every fourth Tuesday of the month. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for networking, followed by a presentation from 7:00-8 pm.
