About this event

The Story of Plastic

A virtual community screening, to be hosted by Green Groups in the Shelfords, Stapleford and Sawston, of the latest film from the 'Story of Stuff' Project.

The Story of Stuff project was set up in 2007 to protest about our consumption-crazed culture, with a slogan of 'Better, not More'. 'The Story of Plastic' is the latest in their series of award-winning films which use animation to get their points across in a challenging but accessible way. The film 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.

Stories and film have a unique ability to bridge divides and bring us together as part of something bigger than ourselves – to connect us and create empathy during perilous times. COVID-19 has impacted in-person events taking place this spring however, we have found a virtual solution. In this unprecedented moment, it’s critical to ensure the voices of activists and marginalized communities are heard to stand up to big oil and businesses perpetuating the plastic crisis. To that end, we hope The Story of Stuff’s new film The Story of Plastic serves as a tool to foster connection, spark dialogue, and create action.

Attendees will receive a link from 2G3S to stream the film at least 48 hours before 8pm on Monday 18th May. The link will be delivered to you at the email address you use to RSVP here. The film is 96 minutes long, and the screening link will expire at 8pm on Monday 18th May.

After having watched the film from the comfort of your own home, you are invited to join us for a discussion about issues raised in the film via Zoom, on Monday 18th May at 8pm. You will receive a separate link for the zoom discussion, alongside the streaming link for the film.
