Story of Plastic film launched on Earth Day

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, we partnered with Earth Day Northwest 2020.  Earth Day Northwest 2020 called on individuals and communities throughout the region to look forward to the future. In the spirit of being the change we wish to see, the Next 5 campaign solicited visions of positive change for the next five years. Also on Earth Day, the new film Story of Plastic debuted on the Discovery Channel. With Sustainable Ballard/Meaningful Movies, we participated in an online discussion panel about the film and the issue of the plastic crisis on April 27.
