Learn more about the plastics issue in our world

Watch August 21-28

Panel Discussion August 28 11:00-12:15

The Story of Plastic is a searing expose, uncovering the ugly truth behind plastic pollution and the false solution of plastic recycling. Different from every other plastic documentary you’ve seen, The Story of Plastic presents a cohesive timeline of how we got to our current global plastic pollution crisis and how the oil and gas industry has successfully manipulated the narrative around it. From the extraction of fossil fuels and plastic disposal to the global resistance fighting back, The Story of Plastic is a life changing film depicting one of the world’s most pressing environmental issues.

This event has been put together by a group of volunteers with expertise in the field of Zero Waste, called Zero Waste Petaluma. Learn how the industry of plastic and it’s impact on our environment. This event will ‘begin’ with an online screening of the film available between Aug 21-28, then have a collective panel discussion on Aug 28th with City of Petaluma, Recology, Zero Waste Sonoma, and Renewable Sonoma to inform us on the local situation of waste. Please sign up for the Panel Discussion in order to receive the movie link on August 21st, and join the panel discussion on the 28th. We look forward to seeing you there!
