Earth Day Forum: Zero Waste Washington and Plastics Pollution
Earth Day Forum: Zero Waste Washington and Plastics Pollution
WhenFriday, Apr. 20, 2018, 12 – 1 p.m.
Description

In honor of Earth Day, Zero Waste Washington will be on hand to share tips on how you can reduce waste, recycle and reuse!

Plastics are everywhere and 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 with a third 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?  Join us for this forum to learn about plastic waste and what is being done to reduce plastic pollution in our region.  Register today!

Free and open to all faculty, staff and students.
