Marine Debris Program Hosts Webinar on Working with Restaurants to Reduce Plastic
DECEMBER 6, 2021 ─ On Nov. 15 and 16 the Marine Debris Program (MDP) hosted a two-part seminar titled, "Working with Restaurants to Reduce Plastic: A NOAA Seminar on Challenges & Successes." The seminar featured presentations and a panel discussion with current and past Marine Debris Program grantees who shared their challenges and lessons learned around how to approach restaurants, how to work with them on plastic reduction, and how to maintain long-term relationships and momentum with the restaurant industry.
The speakers also shared resources that are available to help others who are exploring similar projects. Over 250 environmental professionals from around the country registered for the event and were able to learn more about working with restaurants to reduce their plastic use. Recordings and summary documents will be distributed to registered attendees in the next few weeks.
