Plastics are everywhere and their impacts and management are a growing concern around the Pacific NW and globally. Please join Zero Waste Washington for a conversation highlighting current knowledge of plastics, from microplastics in marine waters to plastics recycling challenges. Last year 300 million tons of new plastic were produced globally, and 1/3 of this was used in plastic packaging, including bags, bottles, containers and wrappers. Even in Washington State where we have strong waste reduction goals, only 15% of plastic waste is recycled. What happens to the rest of it? In this presentation, you will find out about plastic waste and what is being done to reduce plastic pollution in our region.

The second of a series, there will be more about sustainability, reducing waste in our day to day lives and making our own shampoo, selected Mondays until July!
