CalPlug Earth Day Workshop

CalPlug Workshop #16: April 22nd, 2021–Presented Online

Even though many sustainability efforts have been made in the past 50 years such as reducing plastics, increasing recycling efforts, passing environmental regulations, protecting endangered species, etc., there is still much to do for our planet.
