A Virtual Summit

Hosting in a virtual location allows us to reach people from around the world. We are starting a Plastics in the Past Quest and being able to share ideas around the world lets us know that the quest will begin to grow in small pockets and corners of the world, to ripple out and meet each other until there are no longer harmful plastics in use. We do not NEED harmful plastics for anything. There are alternative ways to get our needs met.
