Time & Location

Aug 05, 2019, 10:15 AM – 1:00 PM

Emerald Beach, 329 Erie St, Buffalo, NY 14202, USA

Info & Checklist

As a community let’s take action & have conversations on how to reduce plastic pollution ending up in & washing ashore Lake Erie. In the age of the Anthropocene, humans have had a negative impact on our fresh water and oceanic ecosystems. While

plastic pollution is primarily due to Industry, we need to band together to purchase fewer plastic commodities. Consumers need to demand change from Corporations, only together can we can create positive change. Now is time to reverse the

negative impacts that we’ve had on the health of our planet & humankind.

- Alexis Oltmer (Artist & Founder)
