Ten tons of plastics enter the oceans every minute


To help reduce plastic waste that is endangering the oceans, wildlife and the safety of our food and water, learn ways to avoid using plastics at the Berkeley Ecology Center’s events this month.


Events include information on plastic-free school, office and personal supplies; how corporations, businesses, cities and countries are reducing plastics; the film, “Albatross;” a shoreline cleanup day; a tour of the Berkeley Recycling Yard; and how to contribute and receive discounts at the Ecology Center store. For the full list and schedule of events, look for “Upcoming Events” on the Ecology Center website.
