States are Breaking Up with Plastic

February 14, 2023 , 10:00 am 11:00 am EDT

A Solutions to Plastic Pollution Webinar Series webinar.

Roses are red, violets are blue, states are working to break up with plastic and you should too.

Let’s face it — our relationship with plastics is toxic. Plastic lasts forever, which sounds romantic until you consider that virtually every plastic bag, straw, utensil, or wrapper that has ever escaped into the environment is still out there, infiltrating waterways, being ingested by hundreds of different species, and contributing to global litter. This Valentines Day, listen to speakers from Tennessee, California, Oregon, Washington, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Washington, DC, discuss how States are leading the charge in ending our toxic relationship with plastic.

Keynote speaker: AG Rob Bonta, Attorney General CA
Presenters: Dan Firth, Sierra Club, Tennessee Chapter; Jenn Engstrom, CALPIRG; Charlie Plybon, Surfrider Foundation; Pam Clough, Environment America; Abe Scarr, Illinois PIRG; Jennifer Congdon, Beyond Plastics; Amy Goldsmith, Clean Water Action NJ; Janet Domenitz, MASSPIRG; and Holly Thompson, US PIRG
