 Breathing in Microplastic: The Newest Form of Air Pollution Destroying Our  Lungs - Live Love FruitJoin us for our monthly EcoReps workshop featuring locals making a difference in sustainability and a free vegetarian lunch! We conclude our fall series with a close look at the connection between human health and planetary health!

Idoia Isusi from UofL's Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology will present to us her research about Particulate Contaminants and Microplastics that cause pulmonary health problems in the lungs.

The Sustainability Council’s EcoReps program is designed to move students, faculty & staff beyond talk to action for a more sustainable UofL! We provide basic training & resources, service opportunities, and leadership positions as a point-person & peer-to-peer advocate for sustainability. More info on EcoReps website. This fall, we continue our series of workshops each month on last Fridays at noon. All are welcome.
