During this workshop you will hear about the AMDI and what is being done to address the threat that marine debris poses to our coastal and marine environment. Find out about plastic free alternatives and practical ways to delete plastic out of our shopping trollies, out of our lives and ultimately out of our environment. Glass straws, bamboo toothbrushes, Beeswax wraps are just some of the ways that we can help by changing the way we consume!
