June Zero Waste Meet-Up – Story of Plastic Documentary Screening and Discussion

Thursday, June 3rd, 2021, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm MST


After watching The Story of Plastic Documentary “together” (via-ZOOM-at-your-home-together and abiding by covid protocols) we will unmute ourselves, have discussions about the documentary, and of course, how to take action and change how we have been dealing with plastic consumption and disposal.

This documentary takes a sweeping look at the man-made crisis of plastic pollution and the worldwide effect it has on the health of our planet and the people who inhabit it. With engaging original animation, archival industry footage beginning in the 1930s, and first-person accounts of the unfolding emergency, the film distills a complex problem that is increasingly affecting the planet’s and its residents’ well-being. It also brings into focus the heroes who are working every day to rise up against big plastic.
