Pollution from single-use plastics harms our planet, our wildlife, and our own health. Much of this pollution comes from plastic items we don't need in our lives at all - from plastic grocery bags to polystyrene (aka Styrofoam) takeout food containers. The plastics project aims to push forward both local and statewide legislation to ban single-use plastic bags. Currently, we are focused on forming key partnerships with other organizations, such as ANJEC and the Plastic Pollution Coalition, & taking action for a state plastics bill to pass through the state Assembly.

There are so many incredible organizations in the environmental field. Although each has its own mission, often times we find ourselves overlapping and working together. Each participant will provide us with some insights into their organization and the resources they have to offer. This is an opportunity to understand what’s behind the curtain of each organizations’ acronym.
