The Story of Plastic – film screening & discussion

November 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm PST

Join Santa Monica’s Sustainable Works for a free online screening and panel discussion of the Emmy-winning film The Story of Plastic.

The Story of Plastic is a searing expose revealing 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.

A Panel discussion will follow the film, panelists include:

Dianna Cohen, Plastic Pollution Coalition CEO & Co-Founder and The Story of Plastic Co-Executive Producer
Chris Celsi, Resource Recovery & Recycling Manager with the City of Santa Monica
Page Schult, Co-founder at topanga.io

Sarah Spitz, UC Master Gardener, Los Angeles County will moderate the panel.
