Rise Up and Take Action Against Plastic Pollution!

See that plastic bag on your sidewalk or nearby beach? Join Shedd Aquarium to discuss the impact of local plastic pollution on people and wildlife, explore the challenges with managing waste in your neighborhood, and gain skills to take action to improve the health of nature in your community.

During this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn about the current state of plastic pollution and recycling effort
  • Participate in a guided community discussion about how plastic pollution affects their community and how to take action
  • Learn how to write a personalized letter to a local government official to influence policy on the issue of plastic pollution

Registration for this workshop is free, but there is a suggested at-the-door donation of $5. Donations support the Shedd Aquarium’s work to reduce plastic pollution.
