Waterkeepers Chesapeake invites you to a free virtual screening (at your convenience) and panel discussion about this important film. It 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.
During this unprecedented pandemic, it’s critical to ensure the voices of activists and marginalized communities are heard to stand up to big oil and businesses perpetuating the plastic crisis. Stories and film have a unique ability to bridge divides and bring us together as part of something bigger than ourselves – to connect us and create empathy during perilous times. To that end, we hope The Story of Stuff’s new film The Story of Plastic serves as a tool to foster connection, spark dialogue, and create action. See the trailer.
See the film on your own time and then join the Post-Screening Virtual Video Conversation with Waterkeepers:
- Lower Susquehanna Riverkeeper Ted Evgeniadis
- Anacostia Riverkeeper Trey Sherard
- James Riverkeeper Jamie Brunkow
- Assateague Coastkeeper’s Trash Free Assateague Program Coordinator Billy Weiland
RSVP here and Waterkeepers Chesapeake will share screening and video conferencing links as well as ways to join the global movement to ban plastics for good.
