Apr 30: The Problem with Plastics

The Problem With Plastics and What We Can Do About It:  
Personal and Political Solutions

Plastics pollution is more than just an eyesore.  As plastic breaks into smaller and smaller pieces, Bisphenol A (BPA) and other chemicals leach into streams and rivers where most of us get our drinking water.  Fish and wildlife mistake plastic for food — and can be injured or killed after eating it.  Plastic is not biodegradable, so it will be in our streams, rivers, and oceans forever!
Come learn what you, your family, and your community can do about plastics pollution — and how we can start to live without plastic.
