“Addicted to Plastic” Film February 16

Posted on

The Green Film Series, sponsored by a number of local organizations, will show “Addicted to Plastic” on Thursday, Feb. 16, at 7 pm in Hesterberg Hall at the MTU forestry building. The film focuses on the worldwide production and environmental effects of plastic. The showing will be followed by dessert, coffee and a facilitated discussion.

Take a global journey to investigate what we know about this material of a thousand uses and why there’s so darn much of it! On the way, discover a toxic legacy, and the people striving to clean it up.

Location: G002 Hesterberg Hall, Michigan Tech Forestry Bldg.
Cost: FREE; $3 suggested donation

The Green Film program is partially funded with a grant from the League of Women Voters of the Copper Country, Friends of the Lake of Keweenaw, and the U.P. Environmental Coalition. The film series is cosponsored by the Lake Superior Superior Stewardship Initiative, the Keweenaw Land Trust, the Michigan Tech Center for Water & Society, and the Keweenaw Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.
