Take Climate Leadership Action
Did you know that the entire lifecycle of plastics is filled with deeply rooted problems and worse—an entrenched petrochemical industry that refuses to budge?
To raise awareness of the fundamental problems and unaddressed consequences (health, economic, environmental, and climate threats) posed by the entire lifecycle of plastics, The Climate Reality Project is partnering with several regional organizations to host a monthly webinar series called:
“Tackling the A-Z Impacts of Plastic: From Fracked Gas to Plastic Pollution in the Ohio River Valley and Beyond.”
Watch the full recording of prior webinars here.
Write a letter to the editor, op-ed, or blog post about your story and why you take action to protect the planet.
Contact your local leaders and let them know we cannot put off urgent climate action any longer.
