Story of Plastic Virtual Community Screening and Panel Discussion

Watch the powerful new documentary, The Story of Plastic, and then join a discussion on Zoom with a panel of experts on Wednesday, June 24, from 7 – 8:30 p.m. The Story of Plastic takes a sweeping look at the crisis of plastic pollution and its harm to all life on the planet. This event takes place during the pandemic and as the fight against racism and for racial justice continues in our nation and around the world. The plastic pollution crisis is part of this unjust and violent system, with extraction, production and disposal hitting communities of color disproportionately. View the trailer HERE.

While individual actions are important, this film shows they are not enough. It’s time to shut off the plastic spigot and shift the responsibility for costly and deadly plastic to the producers. View the film at your convenience and then participate in the conversation on Wednesday, June 24, from 7 – 8:30 p.m. RSVP HERE to receive screening and video-conferencing links about one week before June 24.

Community Ecology Institute (CEI)

The Community Ecology Institute and Transition Howard County are pleased to announce that they have joined forces in their work on community sustainability and resilience. The leadership of both organizations recognized the synergy of their work on connecting people to nature, civic ecology, community health and climate change and so Transition Howard County is now a program under the Community Ecology Institute umbrella. Learn more about all of the exciting work that CEI is doing here, including the new Community Ecology Center at a 6.4 acre organic farm in Columbia!
