You are invited to the Penn State Berks Sustainability Council’s second event in the ‘Celebrating Spring by Springing into Action’ series:

“The #Story of Plastic is the story BIG PLASTIC does not want you to see and it is fueling the global movement of #BreakFreeFromPlastic. The Story of Plastic is a searing exposé revealing the ugly truth behind plastic pollution and the false solution of plastic recycling. The Story of Plastic presents a cohesive timeline of how we got to our current global plastic pollution crisis and how the oil and gas industry has successfully manipulated the narrative around it.”

Join us for a screening of the documentary film “The Story of Plastic” on Tuesday, March 21, @6pm, in Luerssen 5, followed by a discussion. The event is free and open to the public. The Story of Plastic is a must-see, eye-opening full feature film that goes to the heart of the problem of plastic pollution and addresses the social, environmental, and economic dimensions of the issue!

There will be a raffle drawing to win prizes. Light refreshments will be served (please bring your own cup/mug to cut down on waste).

Please mark your calendars to attend the event and share the event flyer (attached) with students, colleagues, family, friends, and the community. There will be a student sign-up sheet if offered as extra credit.
