The Leafmonkey Workshop: Trash Talking: Marine Trash and Us (26 March)

The Leafmonkey Workshop always organises wonderful workshops on local environmental topics. The upcoming session for 26 March (Friday), 7pm, is on marine trash. Do check it out, registration is necessary! More details below.

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.

Date:28 March 2014, Friday
Time: 7pm-10pm
Venue: Civil Service College, 31 North Buona Vista Road
