B.E.A.C.H. Speaks Out On Plastic Pollution

There is a rising concern about plastics in our oceans, and Windward residents can learn all about it during two presentations – from 6 to 7:30 p.m. May 29 and June 28 in the Harold K.L. Castle Foundation Community Meeting Room at 131 Hekili St. Suite 111.

Topic of Suzanne Frazer’s talk is “Plastic: Impacts on Your Health, Marine Life and the Environment.” The co-founder of B.E.A.C.H., she knows well how discarded plastics can be harmful to a person’s health, as well as to marine life. She also will discuss chemicals in plastic and in the food chain, the impacts of debris on marine life, and solutions to protect the health and lives of humans and marine life, sea birds and the ocean/coastal environment.

Light refreshments will be provided both evenings, and reservations must be made by calling 393-2168.

B.E.A.C.H. aims to protect marine life, sea birds and the ocean and coastal environment by raising awareness and solutions to marine debris, marine debris removal and research and plastic reduction and litter prevention campaigns.
