Burke Museum on UW campus in Seattle shows problem with plastic

Right next to all the good stuff in the Burke Museum is a room full of bad stuff: used plastic, with its adverse impacts on the environment.

The Burke is a museum of cultural and natural history, on the University of Washington campus in Seattle. It is the repository for many of the state's most significant cultural artifacts.

It is also a museum that connects visitors to the world around them. Presently in its changing exhibit hall, plastic is the focus.
