Join MountainTrue for virtual screening of The Story of Plastic

Press release from MountainTrue:

Join MountainTrue and partners Asheville GreenWorks, Environment NC, and WENOCA Group of the NC Sierra Club for a virtual film screening of The Story of Plastic, followed by a live Q&A on January 26 at 7 p.m.

The film is a seething expose uncovering the ugly truth behind the current global plastic pollution crisis. Striking footage shot over three continents illustrates the ongoing catastrophe: fields full of garbage, veritable mountains of trash; rivers and seas clogged with waste; and skies choked with the poisonous runoff from plastic production and recycling processes with no end in sight.

Original animations, interviews with experts and activists, and never-before-filmed scenes reveal the disastrous consequences of the flood of plastic smothering ecosystems and poisoning communities around the world – and the global movement rising up in response.

If you cannot attend the event on January 26, we still encourage you to register below, as you will have the opportunity to watch this film between January 25 and February 1 on your own time and will receive a recording of the Q&A after January 26.
