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), Craig Turner from Tangaroa Blue and Ashlee Stockwell - Townsville City Council's Waste and Recycling Educator.
We suggest that you bring your own comfy camping chair, beanbag or picnic blanket. Chairs will be available for those who do not have their own, but these are not the most comfortable. As much as we would love to cater and share food at this event, your health is our top priority, so we ask that you PROVIDE YOUR OWN FOOD and only share with your family group.
If you are feeling unwell or displaying any symptoms of Covid-19 (including fever, coughing, sore throat, fatigue or shortness of breath), please stay home. In the interest of public safety we will be refusing entry to anyone displaying these symptoms.
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.
