Shifting the Plastic Pollution Narrative: Holding corporations accountable and reclaiming zero waste

Recording/Webinar | All Ages

For years, many of us have been told an incomplete, misleading story of plastic pollution. One that relies on individual behavior changes and consumer choices, like recycling and buying a reusable water bottle, to mitigate the problem. But to truly solve the plastic pollution crisis requires a far more radical approach to redesign the system at the source. It requires centering the voices of those most impacted by the problem, and holding accountable those most responsible for creating the problem in the first place.

In this workshop, Break Free From Plastic movement organizers Melissa Aguayo and Sybil Bullock will share the real story of plastic pollution, highlighting the social and environmental justice elements at the core of this crisis.
