The free Back to School Workshop, being held on Saturday, August 6, from 10am to 1pm at Branigan Cultural Center, will teach families the benefits of recycling and reusing plastics in their lives.
This will be a fun and interactive workshop for families where attendees will learn how to convert a plastic gallon milk jug into a convenient supply box.
The workshop will be presented in conjunction with the Plastics Unwrapped exhibit which runs until August 20.
Plastics Unwrapped examines how plastics have changed the world, through a range of topics. Discover what life was like before plastics, how they are made, why they’re so convenient and beneficial to use, and what happens after we throw them away. Understand what the recycling numbers mean on plastic items, and learn about promising breakthroughs in science that are changing the role of plastic in our lives.
