Description: This is Part One of the Waste Solutions Webinar Series, developed by Environment America, Inc.; Captain Planet Foundation; League of Conservation Voters; One More Generation; Plastic Pollution Coalition (a Project of Earth Island Institute); Recycle Across America; United States Public Interest Research Group, Inc.; and Waterkeeper Alliance. This free webinar series is a resource to educate, empower, engage and unite activists to help address and resolve some of the most challenging waste issues in the world today. Plastic pollution is becoming a regular topic of conversation—it's time to capture public interest. This webinar will benefit any person or organization interested in fighting plastic pollution through better policies at the state or municipal level. In this webinar, you will learn about: the history of plastic production; why single-use plastic is such a problem; current opportunities to reduce our plastic use; effective policy solutions; statewide victory examples; messaging to win the public; where to find allies; tips to engage consumers; identifying key decision-makers; leveraging public support; actions for volunteers, members and donors; and the (many) reasons to be optimistic.
