You will understand the impacts of plastic in many aspects of our life. It will address the progression of our dependence on extraction and disposability and offer options for a regenerative economy and lifestyle. Why it is important to move away from petrochemical build out to save our planet and its inhabitants. It will draw relationships between the negative effects of plastic on climate change, infrastructure, premature death, loss of recreation, agriculture, health, water and air pollution.

The Cloak of Many Colors - Fast Fashion 20-30 min.

We enjoy being cloaked by many clothing and accessory items. But does our obsession with cheap accessible clothing bring us pleasure at the expense of our health and welfare as well as that of all life on the planet? Does cheap clothing bring us joy or just make our lives seem more disposable? Learn about fast fashion and the tide of plastic pollution. Learn about what we can do to show our unique beauty and life while enriching the arts and valuing them.

PFAS Basics 50 min.

This presentation follows the history of PFAS beginning with their creation, uses, harms, lawsuits, and regulations. Sources and distribution of PFAS are outlined. Human and environmental harms are noted and potential solutions are addressed.

PFAS in Watersheds 50 min.

This is a brief introduction to PFAS and how they are introduced to a watershed. We will identify how PFAS impacts a watershed. Human and environmental harms are noted and potential solutions are addressed.

PFAS in my Community 50 min.

There will be a brief introduction to what PFAS are, where they come from, why they are of concern and what is being done to protect you. Then we will look for potential local contamination sites and research if there is any PFAS monitoring data for these sites. We will touch on what you can do before the Q & A.

PFAS in Agriculture 50 min.

There are many areas that intersect agriculture and the bioaccumulation of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Wastewater solids (biosolids), or sewage sludge and residential septage are important fertilizer after proper treatment for crops as is compost. However, food waste streams are contaminated with PFAS. This contamination bioaccumulates in compost made from mixed feedstocks such as manure, green waste, and food waste. These products become part of the biosolids-based products and the cycle continues. What are other PFAS based contaminants? What is the depth of this problem and are their solutions?
