Plastics!

Plastic has become one of the most ubiquitous substances in our environment. We use it for everything! Try to imagine one day when you don’t touch or see something plastic. And yet, our tremendous use of this miracle substance is creating some serious concerns and challenges to our environment and our health including: the amount of plastic waste accumulating in our oceans and environment, the potential health effects of substances leaching from everyday plastics and the confusion of which plastics can and can’t be recycled.

Come to our 2012 Earth Summit to learn from professionals the latest and greatest news on plastic. The three focus areas will be:
