About the Film
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.
Join us via Zoom for the panel discussion at 7:30pm on February 10. During our discussion, we will talk about what we can do locally to limit our impact. For more information, please contact Kathy Gross at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hosted by Saint John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church in cooperation with the Howard County Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Commission and their partners.
