Tough Truths about Plastic Pollution

Wrigley Lecture Series

Dianna Cohen

  • Artist and Activist
  • CEO/Co-Founder, Plastic Pollution Coalition

Dianna Cohen is the CEO/Co-Founder of the Plastic Pollution Coalition, a group that addresses the pervasive problem of plastic pollution. She was inspired to co-found the group by her work as an artist – because her chosen material is the ubiquitous plastic bag. In this talk, she will raise awareness of ocean waste – the majority of which is nondegradable plastic – and everyday strategies to cut down the amount of plastic we use and throw away.
