Watch The Story of Plastic online with us

Climate Reality Project, Portland Chapter is hosting a free virtual screening of 'The Story of Plastic', the latest film from the 'Story of Stuff' Project. Watch the online screening before 5/28 and then join our community conversation to help stop plastic pollution!

About the film: The Story of Stuff project was set up in 2007 to protest about our consumption-crazed culture, with a slogan of 'Better, not More'. 'The Story of Plastic' is the latest in their series of award-winning films which use animation to get their points across in a challenging but accessible way. The film takes a sweeping look at the man-made crisis of plastic pollution and the worldwide effect it has on the health of our planet and the people who inhabit it.

Attendees will receive a link to stream the film before 11:30 pm on May 28. The link will be delivered to you at the email address you use to RSVP here. The film is 96 minutes long, and the screening link will expire at at 11:30 pm on May 28. You only need 1 invite per household. Organizations may host their own screenings by directly contacting The Story of Plastic. We are offering up to 100 views for our chapter. Get your link to watch the film here.

After having watched the film from the comfort of your own home, you will be invited to join us for a discussion about issues raised in the film via Zoom. You will receive a separate link for the zoom discussion, alongside the streaming link for the film.

What's next for our Chapter?

Last newsletter, there were some changes for our chapter proposed. If you missed it, you can read April's newsletter here.

We've had interest in new sub-committees forming and will be updating you on that next month. We will have members who are involved in other groups to share what they are doing with us, and opportunities for Climate Reality Project Portland Chapter to support their efforts. It will also give newer members some ways to get engaged! Stay tuned.

Please email me for any specific ways you are interested in joining or helping with our chapter. We do need your skills and ideas! Also, please share any specific local actions you are working on or would like help with.
