Local community group Sustainable North Grenville (SNG) is excited to announce the screening of “THE STORY OF PLASTIC” on Thursday, Feb. 8, at 7pm, at the North Grenville Municipal Centre in Kemptville. The film is being shown free of charge.
“THE STORY OF PLASTIC” takes a far‑reaching look at the human‑made crisis of plastic pollution and the world‑wide effect it has on the health of our planet and the people who inhabit it.
The film – created by The Story of Stuff, the people who brought us the film of the same name – illustrates how we can’t recycle our way out of the plastic pollution crisis. It provides a glimpse of the ongoing catastrophe: 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 everyone’s well‑being. To that end, The Story of Stuff’s new film “THE STORY OF PLASTIC” serves as a tool to foster connection, spark dialogue, and create action.
We hope to have information on hand outlining what’s being done in our own community of North Grenville to help solve the problem. A brief discussion will follow the 95‑minute film. Come and join us for a look at how we can put a stop to plastic pollution. A good‑will donation jar will be available for those wishing to help offset the cost of renting the Municipal Hall.
Sustainable North Grenville is a group of citizens interested in helping to make North Grenville a more sustainable community. This is the first film shown by SNG since COVID.
