During the month of July, we are encouraging community members to think about how their consumption of plastic products impacts the Anacostia. Our goal is to raise awareness of the single-use plastic particles that pollute the river. This webinar is part of a series of educational pieces that we will be providing this month.
Trey Sherard, Anacostia Riverkeeper, will moderate a discussion with Julie Lawson, Director of the Mayor’s Office of the Clean City and Blake Adams from the Office of Waste Diversion in the Department of Public Works. We will discuss challenges with plastics in the District and the different approaches the city is taking to tackle this issue.
