Free screening of ‘Addicted to Plastic’ tonight

Posted by Meghan Walker on October 12th, 2012

Tonight at Our Redeemers Church (2400 NW 85th St) there will be a free screening of “Addicted to Plastic,” followed by a discussion led by Heather Trim, Director of Policy with People for Puget Sound. The event information says Trim works on reducing toxic pollution and protecting shoreline health in Puget Sound and also focuses on a range of Seattle issues, including waterfront, habitat, storm water, and land use.

A little about the film, fromĀ Bullfrog Films:

Addicted To Plastic is a point-of-view style documentary that encompasses three years of filming in 12 countries on 5 continents, including two trips to the middle of the Pacific Ocean where plastic debris accumulates. The film details plastic’s path over the last 100 years and provides a wealth of expert interviews on practical and cutting edge solutions to recycling, toxicity and biodegradability. These solutions – which include plastic made from plants – will provide viewers with a new perspective about our future with plastic.

All are welcome, and light refreshments will be served. The screening starts at 7 p.m.
