7pm to 8pm at 21 Acres in Woodinville
It is estimated that by 2025 there will be one pound of floating plastic garbage in the ocean for every three pounds 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.
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.
