Plastic Free July Solutions Salon
Saturday | July 25, 2020 | 11:00 am — 12:30 pm
We’ve all seen the devastating viral video of the sea turtle with a plastic straw stuck in its nose. Or the heartbreaking photos of deceased sea mammals, washed up on beaches with bellies full of plastic bags and film. We’ve gasped at news of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and most recently, have observed an abundance of improperly discarded plastic gloves and face masks amidst the global coronavirus pandemic. While the plastic pollution crisis is not new, envisioning a plastic-free lifestyle and identifying realistic solutions and actionable ways to join the movement, can seem impossible.
Join the Ecology Center and a variety of local community partners for a virtual Salon to discover solutions on how to make plastic-free living a reality. From grocery shopping and personal care to reuse programs and sustainable fashion and gardening- join us, for tips, demonstrations, and plastic-free ideas to inspire your zero waste efforts!
