Tuesday, March 19 at 7pm. First Parish Watertown (35 Church Street, Watertown).

First Parish Watertown in collaboration with Beyond Plastics Greater Boston and Oceana will host a free film screening of Rory Fielding’s documentary “We’re All Plastic People Now.” The film addresses the global plastic pollution crisis and features Oceana‚Äôs Plastics Campaign Director Christy Leavitt and Oceana board member Ted Danson, as they cover the chilling reality of how pervasive plastic pollution is in our lives. Plastic is everywhere from the air we breathe to the water we drink.

Solving the plastic pollution crisis requires that we curb single-use plastic production and cut off the problem at the source. Reuse and refill systems can move us away from throwaway plastics. The future can include less plastic if we turn off the tap of plastic production and consumption and invest in non-toxic reuse together. The screening will be followed by light refreshments, and a discussion on next steps advocating for plastic pollution legislation in Massachusetts. RSVP is not mandatory but recommended.

RSVP

If you cannot make it to the live showing, the documentary is also available to view for free on PBS.
