Plastics: Impacts & Actions

Plastics: Impacts & Actions 

Join us for this topical session exploring the impact single-use plastic is having on the environment and how they can make a positive change to help. Through the lens of our #OneLess campaign, students will get firsthand experience looking at what happens to plastic when it reaches our waterways.
