Plastics. The Planet. And You.Saturday, May 11, 2019

Westin Crown Center - 6:00 pm

The evening of Mother Ocean Day, join Bridging The Gap to explore how single-use plastics are impacting not just our everyday lives, but the entire planet. Ubiquitous single-use plastics are collecting in huge masses in the world's oceans, blighting our urban landscapes and even showing up in human bloodstreams. Learn what the BTG team has uncovered while shopping plastic-free for thirty days, perhaps inspiring you to make deep, personal change.

Your ticket purchase will support BTG's environmental programs, from prairie restoration to tree planting, recycling and water and energy efficiency. Thank you!


Nature-Inspired, Recycled or Goodwill Attire Welcome

We are a thrifty bunch here at BTG and we encourage Recycling and Reuse before purchasing new. So, borrow an outfit, buy one at Goodwill or be creative and make your own!
