Plastics Unwrapped

Saturday, Apr 6, 2013 10:00a to 5:00p

Plastics Unwrapped, a new exhibit from the Burke Museum, explores how material culture was changed by plastics. Learn what life was like before plastics, how they are made, why they’re so convenient, and what happens after we throw them away.
Plastics were marketed as the “material of the future.” Now, it has come true. They will stay in landfills and in our oceans for hundreds, if not thousands of years. In order to counter the impact, we need to rethink our relationship with plastics.
