Virtual - Science for Citizens Seminar Series - Reducing Plastic Waste & Pollution

Tuesday, October 27, 2020

We’re all used to disposal plastic, but some of it ends up in our streams, rivers, the Chesapeake Bay, and ultimately the ocean, harming the wildlife and sealife. CBL scientists partnered with restaurants on Solomons Island and with the Calvert and St. Mary’s County Public Middle Schools to work together on reducing plastic waste and pollution. In this talk, Dr. Bailey will explain how businesses are “making the switch” from common single-use, petroleum-based plastics to alternative products, how scientists are working with schools, and how YOU can help!
