North Carolina Coastal Microplastics Forum
July 15, 2021 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Did you know that the average person ingests 100,000 pieces of microplastic per year? That number doubles if you only drink bottled water. Join the Coastal Federation on July 15th from 9am – 12pm for our virtual North Carolina Coastal Microplastics Forum to hear the latest research on microplastics pollution, which has become a major environmental problem that requires urgent action. Come and learn about the different types of microplastics pollution, the sources and pathways of these contaminants into our waterways, the risks they pose to both the natural environment and human health, as well as current federal and state policies aimed to govern microplastics pollution and what you can do to help.
The North Carolina Coastal Microplastics Forum will be a virtual event held on Zoom. Further information will be shared here, as it becomes available.
