The Cost of Convenience: Quest for Solutions to the Plastic Pollution Crisis

A Plastic Pollution Coalition Webinar

Wednesday, October 20, 2021 - 5:00pm EDT

During the Plastic Pollution Coalition October 20th webinar, we focused on the connection between the plastic pollution crisis and environmental injustice around the world, where economically disadvantaged nations take in a larger share of the world’s trash, and manufacturing chemicals threaten predominantly Black and low-income communities.  

We were joined by journalist Erica Cirino, author of a new book, Thicker Than Water: The Quest for Solutions to the Plastic Crisis; Dr. Kerim Odekon, Environmental Justice Advocate & Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine, Stony Brook University, New York, USA; and Dr. Sedat Gündoğdu,  Associate Professor,  Microplastic Research Group,  Faculty of Fisheries,  University of Cukurova, Turkey.
