An incredible evening not to be missed.  This year's International Earth Day theme is Planet vs. Plastics, making this remarkable film the perfect choice for Earth Day 2024.

The Story of Plastic presents a cohesive timeline of how we got to our current global plastic pollution crisis and how the oil and gas industry has successfully manipulated the narrative around it. From the extraction of fossil fuels and plastic disposal to the global resistance fighting back, The Story of Plastic is a life-changing, Emmy-winning film depicting one of the world’s most pressing environmental issues.

The Story of Plastic 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.

We hope The Story of Stuff’s new film The Story of Plastic serves as a tool to foster connection, spark dialogue, and create action.
