Plastic Pollution: Truths and Myths from Wellhead to Waste Incineration

Presented in collaboration with the Ecology Center

Plastic pollution is a humanitarian crisis that starts with oil and gas extraction and burdens communities at every point in its lifecycle. Come learn about its links to fracking, pipelines and petrochemical processes, the burgeoning consumer packaging industry, and why the oil industry is pushing this growth. We’ll share the truths and myths around plastic recycling, as well as exciting successes battling waste incineration. The focus will be on how attendees can engage in real solutions based on equity and accessibility.
