A free movie, “The Story of Plastic,” will give you the background you need to understand the problem and the critical need for the solutions being proposed. This documentary 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. It introduces audiences to the heroes and the villains behind one of the world’s most pressing environmental issues, from the extraction of fossil fuels to plastic disposal, and to the global resistance fighting back.
