THE PROBLEM WITH PLASTICS

Thursday, August 13 | 6-7PM ZOOM

Plastic is the most common item found on trash cleanups with most of these items being single-use, disposable plastics. We must stop plastic at its source and use less of it. Plastic is harmful to the environment and all living organisms. We need to rethink how we use plastic and ultimately make the decision to use less in our lives. This program is virtual and will take place via Zoom.

Presented by Jill Bartolotta
Extension Educator for the Ohio Sea Grant College Program
