Is plastic pollution something you’re concerned about?
Welcome to Plastics EDU a FREE education series to help you:
- Understand what the plastic problem really is.
- How it can be fixed.
- What your role in helping solve the problem is.
This course is Free of charge and has no advertisements or sponsors.
Future versions of this course will have one or both, in order to support the extensive research needed to keep it relevant.
I believe good health and a clean environment are basic human rights.
Careless plastic use and pollution is a threat to our wellbeing.
If you agree, I think you’ll find this education series extremely interesting and helpful. What to expect:

I will answer:

What do we do next? (Module 3)
Meet your teacher
I’m Dave and I'll be your teacher throughout this email series.

I’m obsessed with understanding why society knowingly does things against its own interest...
Why are we drowning ourselves in plastic when we know it’s bad for us?
Here’s why I'm qualified to teach you:
