Story of Plastic Forum

December 31, 2024

Watch this recorded webinar to hear from an expert panel on how plastic pollution is impacting the environment globally, as well as here in Lake Tahoe. Then learn how you can help tackle the problem.

The panel of experts includes: Tahoe Environmental Research Center, South Tahoe Refuse, Incline Village Government Improvement District’s Waste Not Program, Keep Truckee Green, Nevada Division of Environmental Protection, Desert Research Institute, Take Care Tahoe, League to Save Lake Tahoe, Clean Up the Lake, CA State Parks, and Sierra Watershed Education Partnerships.

We encourage you to also watch The Story of Plastic, a revealing look at the origin of our global plastic pollution problem and the ripples it’s sending across the world. Learn more about microplastics in specific from the scientists at the UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center.

Once you’ve wrapped your arms around the scope and importance of this challenge, get engaged by joining a Tahoe Blue Crew to help create a litter-free Tahoe.
