The Story of Plastic – Speaker’s Panel Recording

The #storyofplastic is the story BIG PLASTIC does not want you to see. Even though watching together in person is a challenge, we can still flatten the curve and be together virtually. Beyond Plastics Greater Seattle is hosted the streaming link through 8/1 AND hosted a follow up Speaker’s and Q&A Panel on 7/31@1pm PST.

Thanks to all who joined us for this event! We can no longer show the film, but you can view our speaker’s panel session here.
