Keep Bristol Beautiful – Plastics in Our World

May 15, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Mt. Abraham UMHS Environmental Action Group members, in partnership with the Bristol Democratic Committee and the Keep Bristol Beautiful initiative, are presenting an educational forum and discussion about the current state of plastics in our world. Come learn how plastic travels through the waste stream and never goes away. Discuss the concept of waste – it is a human construct – and how we can reduce it on a daily basis. Learn how plastics are made and its relationship to fossil fuels as well as how to get it reused and recycled in our area. Understand with us the long lasting costs and effects of plastic usage. We will update you one the current iteration of the Plastic Ban working its way through the Vermont Legislature. Demos, free bags and other products will be available.
