Plastics & Climate: Exploring What We Know, Impacts on Vulnerable Communities, and How to Solve the Problem

April 4 , 2:30 pm 3:30 pm EDT

The Trash Free Waters program will be hosting a webinar to discuss the relationship between plastics and climate change. From production and transport to consumption and disposal, plastics have a profound impact on our environment, including our climate. During this webinar, three expert panelists will provide information on the effects of plastic consumption and production on climate change and answer your questions about this serious problem. Join us for this webinar to explore the nature and scale of this problem, hear about policy options to mitigate its effects, and learn about the disproportionate burden placed on vulnerable populations. Closed captioning will be available during the webinar.
