Reducing Plastic Waste and Moving Beyond a Throwaway Culture

Join us to learn how the exponential growth of plastics is threatening the survival of our planet. In this webinar, we hear from Valeria Merino, Vice President for Global Earth Day, about the Earth Day Network’s “A World Without Plastic Pollution Earth Day Campaign.” Ms. Merino shares the many resources available from the Earth Day network to help us reduce our consumption of plastics. We also unpack the Covenant’s Earth Day Program (Beyond a Throwaway Culture: Reduce Waste–Grow Community), and explore how your faith community can celebrate our common home on Earth Day…and every day!
