PPC Webinar | Plastic-Free Resolutions: Protecting Your Health in 2024

January 18 , 5:00 pm 6:00 pm EST

With a new year comes new resolutions for protecting and improving the health of our bodies, families, communities, and the planet that we all call home. One healthy resolution to consider is to reduce or eliminate plastic from your life. But with plastic used for everything from making clothing to carrying food and drinks, this can seem like a daunting task.

Join us on January 18 for our first webinar of the new year: Plastic-Free Resolutions: Protecting Your Health in 2024. During this event, we will offer tangible, common sense ways to reduce the amount of plastic you use in your daily life. We’ll discuss why it’s important to avoid plastics, provide you with DIY and low- and no-cost solutions, and highlight helpful products you may turn to when you need an extra hand.

Our panelists for this inspiring conversation include Queer Brown Vegan Isaias Hernandez; Zero Waste Farmer Manju Kumar; and Co-Owner & Co-Founder of Life Without Plastic Jay Sinha. The conversation will be moderated by MADE SAFE Founder Amy Ziff
