For decades throughout the world, plastic and plastic materials designed to last forever have entered our lives and the worldwide environments in which we live. Plastic is everywhere from plastic bags and wrappings to plastic toys, furniture, household and manufactured items that we buy, use and throw into mountains of non-disposable, non-destructible and non-reducible man-made trash. Today worldwide landfills, oceans, dump sites and beaches are already packed with plastic products that contain large and microscopic particles – polluting earth, ground and air sources and resources. Join our speakers in the discussion of the worldwide use of non-destructible plastic that pollutes our environments and our lives with trillions of tons of manufactured plastic that are sold, used and discarded throughout the world and will not go away.
