A new exhibit titled ``Plastics and the Environment'' will be unveiled June 16 at an open house at the National Plastics Center in Leominster, Mass. The program will look at how plastics interact with the world and their environmental impact. Plastics will be compared to other materials. The program also will look at the way plastics are disposed. The free event will include displays, videos and hands-on activities. It is geared for children in middle and secondary school, but it also is informative for adults, officials said. The National Plastics Center is a nonprofit organization established in 1982.
