4 May to 29 June | Wednesdays from 12:30 - 13:15
The enormous consumption of fossil fuels and the heating up of the climate, damage to health through dangerous plastic additives as well as the massive pollution of ecosystems - these are only some of the serious consequences of the constantly growing plastic production.
