How safe am I eating from plastic take out containers? Can I put them in the microwave? Can I reuse them? What’s this I hear about BPA? Am I at risk? What about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch? Does that affect me? How can I help stop the patch from growing?
First we will talk about how plastic pollutes your body and in the global environment. Then we will discuss how to be as healthy as possible in this Very Plastic world, and what sorts of things need to change to deal with plastic pollution effectively. Participants will get a resource booklet at the end of the class that outlines best practices of the politics and consumption of plastics.
