You are invited to join the October 20 webinar on The Cost of Convenience: Quest for Solutions to the Plastic Pollution Crisis. We will be focusing on the connection between the plastic pollution crisis and environmental injustice around the world, where economically disadvantaged nations take in a larger share of the world’s trash, and manufacturing chemicals threaten predominantly Black and low-income communities.
We will be joined by journalist Erica Cirino, author of a new book, Thicker Than Water: The Quest for Solutions to the Plastic Crisis; Dr. Kerim Odekon, who is affiliated with a community group in Long Island, New York, that is fighting a landfill project; and Dr. Sedat Gündoğdu, a microplastics researcher and environmental justice advocate in Turkey.
