Surfrider Foundation is proud to partner with a number of other groups on March 3 in Salem, OR for a special screening of The Story of Plastic, a new film by the Story of Stuff project that highlights the broader social narrative around the global plastic pollution crisis. Prior to the screening, a special panel discussion will occur at the Capitol building for legislators to discuss various models of plastic pollution solutions and to help identify legislative champions for future policy efforts. Before and after the film, there will opportunities to learn about efforts currently underway in Oregon to reduce plastic waste, take action to prevent plastic pollution and get involved with the growing global movement to stop this pollution at it’s source. Seats and space is limited for the screening so we encourage you to RSVP now and get your tickets for this free special screening. Time and details below:

About the Film: The Story of Plastic 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. – Story of Plastic Website
