We are pleased to offer this special screening and panel discussion on The Story of Plastic to the recycling and waste community. The COVID-19 crisis has changed the way people consume, creating a critical opportunity to look at our systems and build a more sustainable “new normal.” That includes not only looking upstream at waste prevention and reuse but how plastic is manufactured. We need to protect people’s health and the health of the planet, build a resilient future and empower individuals from all walks of life to live a sustainable lifestyle. The Story of Stuff’s new film, The Story of Plastic, serves to spark dialogue, provide hope, create action and help us break free from plastic pollution.
