Earth Day Film Presentation, Saturday, April 20, 2024

In observance of Earth Day (April 22), Brainerd Area Coalition for Peace and Brainerd Lakes United Environmentalists (BACP-BLUE) will host a film presentation of the 2019 documentary "The Story of Plastic" in the Brainerd public library's large conference room on Saturday, April 20. The film presentation is scheduled to last from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Brainerd public library is located at 416 South Fifth Street, Brainerd, across from Mickey's Pizza and Subs.

"The Story of Plastic" provides an historical perspective on plastic pollution. The film examines the major role the fossil fuel industry plays in creating plastic pollution. "The Story of Plastic" is critical of plastic recycling as a solution to plastic pollution. "The Story of Plastic" documents the growing public awareness of plastic pollution and the movement demanding a curtailment of plastic production and waste.

Snacks and beverages will be offered. Everyone is welcome to attend "The Story of Plastic" film presentation. The film presentation is a free event. Please join us.
