Drowning in Plastic - 8-19-20 - (Webinar)
Course Sponsor: Penn State Extension
Plastics have become such a major part of our lives and many discarded plastics end up in our waterways. Over time, plastics will break down into smaller pieces called microplastics, but they will never go away. This presentation will focus on plastic waste, especially microplastics, their impacts to our environment and our health, and what you can do to help stem the tide.
