Last summer People Over Petro and many of its partners joined in a summer digital series and summit called Tackling theA-Z Impacts of Plastic - From Fracked Gas to Plastic Pollution in the Ohio River Valley and Beyond. Hundreds of people joined in  a social network with events, arts, and discussions around the impacts of plastic and what we can do about it.
