From June 21 to July 5, 2021, the National Museum of Natural History at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences presents the exhibition “Plastdemia: The Seas and Oceans Also Need a Vaccine”, dedicated to the fight against plastic pollution in the Crystal Garden Open-Air Gallery.
Plastic is now an integral part of our daily lives and for many people it is almost inevitable, and limiting it is often a difficulty in changing already established habits. What makes plastic useful is exactly what makes it harmful: it is sustainable. At the same time, the smaller a plastic particle, the more organisms can absorb it. In this way, the microplastic is transmitted from organism to organism throughout the food chain, with the largest amount accumulating in the predator at the top of the pyramid of the respective ecosystem, and most often it is man.
Are there technological solutions to reduce plastic pollution, what recommendations, advice and good practices for reducing plastic waste can we follow in our daily lives and does the European Union envisage new regulatory mechanisms to deal with the problem.
You can find the answers to all these questions in the poster exhibition “Plastdemia: The Seas and the Oceans Also Need a Vaccine” at the National Museum of Natural History at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. Get acquainted with the latest data and solutions offered by scientists and conservationists from around the world.
The exhibition is organized jointly with Sofia Municipality.
