Paper, Plastic or the Planet? This program is all about plastic and alternatives. It explores how land and sea-based sources of plastic enter the ocean and in turn, the food chain. We will explore our role in plastic consumption, decomposition of plastic versus alternatives, non-renewable resources, and ways we can choose to live in a more sustainable, plastic-free world.
Experiments,models, renewable & non-renewable resources, watersheds and carbon cycles, interdependence of organisms and resources, human impacts and solutions!
