Plastic Wars discussion

November 16, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Plastic Wars, a joint investigation from FRONTLINE and NPR, reveals how plastic makers for decades have publicly promoted recycling, despite from almost the beginning privately expressing doubts that widespread plastic recycling would ever be economically viable. Facing public calls to reduce plastic consumption and ban some single-use plastics in recent years, the industry is once again promoting recycling.

Watch the 1-hour documentary on your own time. Then join us on Nov. 16 and be part of the conversation about how our national obsession with recycling has distracted attention from the more consequential environmental impacts of ever-growing consumption. And – learn how you can be part of the solution.

Free registration here. The link to the movie will be included in your confirmation email.

Co-hosted by Go Green Winnetka, the League of Women Voters of Winnetka-Northfield-Kenilworth, and Winnetka Congregational Church.
