About this Event
Saint John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church's Green Team invites you to an online screening of the powerful new documentary, The Story of Plastic, followed by a discussion on Zoom with a panel of experts on Wednesday, February 10th from 7:30- 9:30 p.m.
THE STORY OF PLASTIC takes a sweeping look at the crisis of plastic pollution and its catastrophic harm to all life on our planet. Spanning three continents, the film illustrates the ongoing catastrophe: fields full of garbage, mountains of trash, rivers and seas clogged with waste, and skies choked with the poisonous emissions from plastic production and processing. With engaging original animation, archival industry footage beginning in the 1930s, and first-person accounts of this unfolding emergency, the film distills this complex problem while laying out what corporations as well as individuals need to do. A TRAILER CAN BE SEEN AT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37PDwW0c1so
During our discussion of the film we will talk about what we can do locally to limit our impact.
