Trash Talking: Marine Trash and Us

This is the 2nd workshop of 2014 by The Leafmonkey Workshop for existing nature volunteers and those interested in the environment.

Date: 28 March 2014, Friday
Time: 7.00pm - 10.00pm
Venue: Civil Service College [Map]

What is this workshop about? 
If plastic trash were out of sight, out of mind, are they really completely out of our lives? When disposed, many of our plastic trash would land in our oceans and harm marine animals in various ways such as entanglement and plastic ingestion. It has also been found that humans are not spared from the insidious effects of this plastic plague. What can we do or are doing to salvage this situation?

This workshop is useful for all who are interested to learn more as well as passionate members of the community who would like to share their feedback, brainstorm solutions and network with like-minded volunteers to make a difference.
