BOOK DISCUSSION SERIES
JUNK RAFT: AN OCEAN VOYAGE & A RISING TIDE OF ACTIVISM TO FIGHT PLASTIC POLLUTION
by Marcus Eriksen
Wednesdays in February / 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Eriksen, along with Joel Paschal, creates a "junk raft" from 15,000 plastic bottles, and sets out to sail from Los Angeles to Hawaii. As the journey is shared, readers learn about the state of plastic pollution today, including the microplastics that are so prevalent in the ocean. Though the situation is indeed serious, Eriksen offers solid research that points to ways we can change the course of plastics in our world.
