[email protected]: Our Plastic PNW with Zero Waste
- date: June 26, 2018
- time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
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
