“Think OUTSIDE the Plastic Bag (… bottle, cup, take-home container and straw)” will offer plastic facts, ways to break our plastic addiction, and describe how a bag ban works.
Things made of plastic surround us. Fossil carbon in the form of oil is pumped from deep in the earth, turned into disposable plastic things that often get used once and tossed. From there they pollute our world, and sometimes kill wildlife and slowly enter the food web. Did you know plastic pollution can now be found in seafood, beer, salt, honey, and other foods? “Think OUTSIDE the Plastic Bag (… bottle, cup, take-home container and straw)” will offer plastic facts, ways to break our plastic addiction, and describe how a bag ban works.
About the speaker:
Carol Sullivan describes herself as a recovering plastic addict, whose only credentials are caring what kind of planet her 10 grandchildren will live in, and the conviction that together, we can be that “100th monkey” and change the way our society looks at plastics.
She hopes you learn one new thing tonight, and knows that she will learn more than that from you.
Transition Fidalgo and Friends program gatherings are open to all and you are welcome to attend; you needn’t be a member to come.
Our gatherings include community announcements and programs to help build local resilience and reduce carbon dependency.
Join us at the Anacortes Senior Center (1701 22nd) on August 28 at 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
