Would you like to find more ways to get plastic out of your life? It’s easier (and more fun) than you may think! Our special guest speaker East Bay author and community activist, Beth Terry, will show us how to replace plastic with less harmful materials. She'll tell us how she got started with her Plastic Free Life and share some of the many alternatives she has documented in her book Plastic Free! How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too. (Signed copies of the new edition will be available for purchase.)
We'll be showing a recently premiered film out of British Columbia, From the Waste Up – Life Without Plastic. Filmmaker Taina Uitto documents her own efforts and those of six other volunteers who pledge to live for a whole year without plastic. She looks at our addiction to plastic in a very real and down to earth way and as a participant in the project brings a level of humor to a very serious situation. You'll sympathize with the volunteers as they struggle to make change and rejoice with them when they are successful. This is a fun and inspiring film you won't want to miss. We'll meet and greet at 6:30, the program begins at 7:00. Please bring plastic free snacks to share if you'd like to.
