“The Truth about Plastics,” a day-long educational forum hosted at Whatcom Community College, brought together a variety of experts and concerned citizens to study the hard truth about plastics and their environmental impact.
The Mt. Baker chapter of the Sierra Club, Zero Waste Washington, and the Sustainability Club at Whatcom joined professors from Western Washington University and Washington State University, for the all-day seminar.
“The objective of the event is to get people excited about helping the environment,” said Heather Trim, the executive director of Zero Waste Washington.
