October Monthly Gathering: Thinking OUTSIDE the Plastic Bag
October 30, 2018
6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Anacortes Senior Center, 1701 22nd St.
TF&F Monthly Gathering Presentation
Think OUTSIDE the Plastic Bag
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 speakers: 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. Peggy Ratermann will also assist.
Free and open to all. Program starts at 6:30 p.m. and ends at 8 p.m.
Our monthly gatherings include a sharing time and programs to help build local resilience and reduce carbon dependency. For more information, visit transitionfidalgo.org.
