Attendance to both speeches is free, and everyone is welcome to attend and hear Captain Moore’s story while learning about plastic pollution.

Both of Captain Moore’s speeches at CWU will shed light on the negative impacts of plastic in the environment. His first speech at noon is titled, “Plastic Pollution of the Marine Environment: A Rapidly Increasing, Long-Term Threat” and his second at 4 p.m. is titled “What is Plastic’s Meaning – For the Ocean and Us?”
