Last week the Copper River Watershed hosted a virtual community screening of the new documentary The Stroy of Plastic followed by a Q&A discussion hosted on Zoom video conference. We were very excited to have over 90 requests to view the documentary. We would like to help keep the momentum moving forward for preventing plastic pollution and providing community education for the issues surrounding the recycling and plastic production industries so we have compiled a list of helpful local and global resources!
