2020 is looking a little different to how we'd imagined it a few months ago. Regardless, we'd love you to get involved with us in any way possible! Check out our upcoming events and brush up on your video chat skills! If you'd like to stay up-to-date with your events you can also follow us on Facebook and join the Green Drinks Facebook Group!
Are you ready to meet face-to-face?? As restrictions are lifting, we are venturing out into the real world to support a local business and share some lively conversations in person! Join us anytime from 6pm onwards at The Commonwealth Hotel in South Townsville. We will be locking in our booking a week in advance, so please ensure you RSVP by Friday 3 July.
Townsville's Green Drinks is an informal, monthly social event for people who care about conservation, sustainability and all things environmental. It is an opportunity for networking, creativity and thought-sharing on environmental issues and projects. Green Drinks are agenda-free, non-politically aligned and everyone is welcome.
To celebrate Plastic Free July, we are hosting a free screening of THE STORY OF PLASTIC under the stars in our leafy backyard in Railway Estate - and we want you to join us!
Arrive anytime from 6pm for a 6.30pm start. The film goes for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, and afterwards we will host a Q&A session with Diana Condylas from Plastic Free Townsville (an initiative of Boomerang Alliance).
We suggest that you bring your own comfy camping chair if you have one, and bring along a plate of (plastic-free) food to share, if you can. We will have spare chairs on hand, as well as some snacks and drinks.
If you live outside of Townsville but would like to participate, please get in touch, as there may be a possibility for a virtual screening and we can capture the Q&A discussion via Zoom or Facebook Live if there is demand for it.
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. The film illustrates the ongoing catastrophe and features interviews with experts and activists on the front lines of the fight. 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.
THE STORY OF PLASTIC is presented by The Story of Stuff Project, a nonprofit dedicated to changing the way that we make, use, and throw away Stuff so that it is more sustainable, healthy, and fair.
