Waste(d) Efforts Panel Discussion at the Academy of Natural Sciences

October 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join the Academy of Natural Sciences for a panel discussion about trash and recycling systems.

Waste is among the many issues facing global citizens. Throughout the 1990s, we were told that our individual efforts to recycle could alter the planet and save the ozone layer. We are now confronted, however, by corporate dumping, outsourced trash and continued damages to the earth’s ecosystem. In the wake of an environmental crisis, there’s no time to waste when it comes to … waste. As much as we can “take a minute before we bin it,” are these efforts meaningful in light of corporate dumping and trash incinerators? How do we hold our city, state and federal systems accountable? This panel will address the controversial truths of our trash and provide insight into our potential future.

Free with registration.
