Starting November 2021, NJ’s new plastics law goes into effect to help reduce the amount of single-use plastics and protect our natural environment. Plastics from generation to disposal are creating a human health and environmental crisis. Right now, New Jerseyans use over 4 billion single-use plastic carryout bags annually. Join Nandini Checko, Project Director with the Association of NJ Environmental Commissions, to learn about the nation’s strongest plastic pollution law and how you can get started right now! Hint: Say YES to Reusables!
Our Earth Day, Every Day webinar series (lovingly called #E2D2) focuses on steps everyone can take to protect the environment. We can all do our part to take actions that make our homes more sustainable, from environmentally-friendly lawn care, to recycling, to conducting a home energy audit.
