Day 286 – Charlie Rolsky is a plastic pollution researcher, finishing up his PhD at Arizona State University, and he serves as the Director of Science for Plastic Oceans. Charlie and Plastic Oceans International has created a video series to help educate us all on the plastic pollution problem.
The videos are short and to the point. They cover topics like:
- The Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle)
- Burning Plastic: The Pros and Cons
- Plastic in Our Food…and Bodies
- Biodegradable Plastics: Working with What We’ve Got
Plastic Oceans International offers many resources to help you better understand the plastic pollution crisis.
The first step in fighting this war on plastic is to educate ourselves on the root of the problem. If we can not see that we all need to change our relationship with plastic, we will never be part of the solution.
Tomorrow, recycling water in office buildings.
