Join us this autumn for the Fall of Plastics, a 3-part lecture series that addresses the need to radically reduce plastics in our lives. From their significant carbon emissions, to bringing toxics into our bodies, to creating waste that is accumulating exponentially each day, petroleum based plastic materials need to be questioned.
If you listened to Season 2 of the Trace Material Podcast, you’ll remember hearing how the social history of plastics has created our plasticized present. And, we know it does not have to be that way in the future. These three events address what plastics do to our bodies and our environment and how we can make changes to reduce their presence in our homes.
