What effect is our obsession with plastics having on the planet? How much waste do we produce each year? What do we really understand about the problem? Join Friends of the Earth's lead plastic pollution expert Julian Kirby for an eye-opening talk, where we delve deep into this growing global crisis.

When was the last time an environmental issue captured public hearts and minds the way plastic pollution has?

Programmes like Blue Planet II and 'Drowning in Plastic' driven an unprecedented response from people from all walks of life, but with fresh revelations from scientists and researchers on an almost weekly basis — how much do we really know about the plastic pollution crisis?

Join Friends of the Earth's Lead Plastic Pollution Campaigner Julian Kirby — discussing the surprising sources of the problem, summarise what the latest science warns about its effects, and describe the things we can do about it as individuals and as a community.

Venue: Beach Blanket Babylon, Shoreditch
Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
