UNCW Rise Above Plastics Presentation

Many of us have heard about the problems with plastic - polluting our oceans and beaches and harming our health with toxic chemicals. But what can one person do to be part of the solution?

Join author Beth Terry in UNCW’s Lumina Theater from 7 to 9 p.m. on Monday, March 11 for a special presentation sponsored by the UNCW Surfrider Foundation. Terry, author of "Plastic-Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too," will be joined by local mom Danielle Richardet and UNCW staff member and plastic researcher Bonnie Monteleone. They’ll share practical tips about ways to reduce the amount of plastic in your home and on the planet.

This event is free and open to all. For more information, email DanielleLR55@aol.com or monteleoneb@uncw.edu.
