The webinar is part of the CARE About a Clean Cape & Islands educational series aimed at eliminating plastic pollution and litter. The presentation will be held Thursday, February 25, 10-11AM via Zoom.
This webinar will convene business, nonprofit and municipal leaders to address critical issues in responding to the plastic water bottle bans. Almost all towns on Cape Cod are instituting plastic bottle bans as the result of a coordinated citizen advocacy led by nonprofit, Sustainable Practices. As these bans take effect, businesses, town governments, residents and visitors are grappling with how to best comply.
The webinar will be a panel discussion moderated by Teresa Martin, Executive Director, Lower Cape Community TV. Panelists include representatives from Boston, Concord, and Nantucket, MA to share insights and lessons learned from other communities that have instituted similar bans. The conversation will address questions such as:
– What can we learn from other communities’ bottle bans?
– What solutions can towns implement to ensure publicly available drinking water?
– How can retailers, restaurants and other businesses benefit from the bans, while benefiting the environment?
– What will success look like? How will we measure it?
