Sustainability Series: Stemming the Tide on Plastic: Can Washington Lead the Way?

February 24, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Stemming the Tide on Plastics: Can Washington Lead the Way?

Our February Sustainability Series is focused on plastics. Our second presentation of this month will be Stemming the Tide on Plastics: Can Washington Lead the Way?

February 24th, 5 pm Session Description:
We have both a plastics crisis and a recycling crisis, resulting in significant impacts on wildlife, in our communities, and the ocean.
In Washington, we are addressing these problems through voluntary actions and policy changes at the local and the state level.  Join us to learn more about all of the current activities around these important issues, including a legislative update from Zero Waste Washington!

Speaker Bio:
Heather has over 25 years of experience in environmental work. She joined Zero Waste Washington as Executive Director in 2016 and has been ramping up programs to reduce upstream sources of waste, get toxic chemicals out of products, reduce plastic pollution, all building on the organization’s producer responsibility policy initiatives. Heather has extensive experience in technical and science aspects of environmental policy.  As part of Zero Waste Seattle, Heather was a leader in the Seattle bag campaign and helped lead the effort for Seattle’s food serviceware, phone book opt-out, and commercial building recycling/compost ordinances.
