Kick off Plastic Free July by learning about plastic pollution and what you can do to help combat the issue!
We have partnered with Greenpeace Winnipeg once again to bring you a thought provoking experience that’ll change your relationship with plastic!
Learn about the issue of plastic pollution and hear from those fighting for change at our virtual screening of The Story of Plastic, followed by a panel discussion with local activists (panelists TBA).
About the film:
Produced by The Story of Stuff Project, THE STORY OF PLASTIC 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. Spanning three continents, the film illustrates the ongoing catastrophe: fields full of garbage, veritable 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 the unfolding emergency, the film distills a complex problem that is increasingly affecting the planet’s and its residents’ well-being.
Due to Covid-19, we are offering a digital version of the screening and panel discussion, allowing you to #BreakFreeFromPlastic and flatten the curve all from the comfort of your home.
