Going on a Plastic Diet: How to reduce your use
Wednesday, July 14, 2021, 2:00 PM until 3:30 PM
Registration is recommended
Plastics permeate our lives— household products and furnishings, packaging of our food, drinks, cosmetics, our Amazon purchases. They are cheap and convenient. Plus they are sometimes recycled and fabricated into inventive new products. But plastic recycling is mostly a myth, inventive new products often marketing hype. In truth plastics clog our oceans and overflow our landfills. They endanger our health. But who has time to ferret out alternatives?
Join Jeanne Lenehan, a typical consumer and ardent environmentalist, as she describes her 10-year journey to reduce her use of plastics. Her considerable knowledge of the downsides of plastics as well as alternatives comes from, books, blogs, websites, and YouTube videos. She’ll give you tips to get started and alternatives gleaned from her own exploration and experience. Over time, she’s made changes to her daily life that have reduced her trash, recyclables and overall plastic consumption. Her goal is to increase awareness and help others make responsible choices.
Bring your questions and contribute your own strategies for reducing your plastic footprint.
Via Zoom: Wednesday July 14 2:00-3:30.
