|What’s Brewing | Microplastics: A Brewing Stormwater Issue|
|Time:||4:30 pm - 7:30 pm|
Join MECA at Urban Growler for an inside look at microplastics and our industry.
Microplastics pollution is a growing issue in Minnesota. Minnesota researchers have found microplastics in beers brewed with water from the Great Lakes. Microplastics have also been found in the metro Mississippi River and the river provides drinking water to 1.2 million Minnesotans.
Plastics are a common material in products we use every day, including our industry (e.g., erosion prevention and sediment control practices, such as silt fence, erosion control blanket, hydraulic mulch, etc.). Join us to understand the linkages to our industry and how we can be part of the solution.
