Sustainability Film Series: Plastic Paradise Film Screening

May 5, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

“EVERY single piece of plastic that has ever been created since the 19th century is still SOMEWHERE on our planet. So if it never goes away, where does it go?” (Plastic Paradise)
Come find out at our free community screening of Plastic Paradise, a documentary exploring our voracious plastic consumption and its effect on our oceans and human and non-human life that depend on them.

The evening will include dance, performance art, film, snacks, and local artist perspective.
