(ERIE, PA) – Plastic pollution in Lake Erie, our oceans, and in waterbodies across the globe has been the featured topic of “The Plastic Pollution Solution: One Small Change,” a public exhibit at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center (TREC) in Erie, Pennsylvania, which opened in April 2018. The exhibit will be closing in October, but before it does, the sponsoring partners are proud to present the following public event:

An evening presentation and book-signing event with Jay Sinha, Co-Founder and Co-Author of “Life Without Plastic: The Practical Step-by-Step Guide to Avoiding Plastic to Keep Your Family and the Planet Healthy.”

• What is plastic and what is the life cycle of an every-day piece of plastic?
• How is the Earth itself becoming more plastic?
