SOFO: "Plastics...What’s All This Fuss About Plastics?"
Saturday, June 22, 2019
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
We will discuss the environmental problems plastic causes when it is
eaten by marine animals—they may die from getting their digestive
system clogged up—and plastics can entangle them in a way that they
cannot get rid of it. We have also become aware of tiny pieces of
plastic, “microplastics” that are found everywhere they are looked for
—in the oceans, freshwater, groundwater, soil, and air.
And, we will discuss various solutions—beach cleanups,and ways to
reduce the use of plastic in the first place that can be enacted by
countries, states, and municipalities.
