Program Description

Event Details

Hear from legislators and local entrepreneurs on solutions to the plastic pollution problem. 

Plastic pollution poses a significant threat to our environment. Scientists have discovered plastic pollution in every corner of the globe, from mountain tops to ocean trenches and inside our own bodies, in our blood, our lungs and other organs. Our panelists will talk about how legislative policies and innovative solutions can help with the plastic crisis.  

Prior to the panel discussion, please watch this short PBS documentary, foreword by Ted Danson, We Are Plastic People - Rory Fielding Films to learn about the health concerns from plastics.
