On 24th March, Maree Sala gave an in-depth talk on the meaning of “zero-waste” and how plastic has become enmeshed in our lives.

It was a highly interesting, but disturbing talk.  It covered plastic pollution, microplastics, the effect on the environment and the effect on our bodies.  But she also looked at our power as consumers to make changes in our lives to combat this, no matter how little.  And she also covered new EU regulations (which may filter in to the UK?) and campaigns we could sign up for.

We’ll be adding more information soon, but in the meantime you can find a presentation here:

Zero Waste and the Perils of Plastic

We’ll also add more info on groups and campaigns fighting against plastic pollution.


Maree Sala is owner of Zer0 Waste Eco Corner in Sydenham.
