The Plastic Crisis – What you can do

We want to continue to support you to live sustainably, learn new skills, and connect to each other and nature, while we’re increasingly at home due to COVID-19.

Following our recent virtual screening and panel discussion of The Story of Plastic, we’ve collated useful resources so you can find out more about the waste and plastic industry, and how you can take action.

The documentary took a sweeping look at the human-made crisis of plastic pollution, it’s history, and the worldwide effect it has on the health of our planet and the people who inhabit it. The Story of Plastics features powerful footage spanning three continents, including interviews with experts and activists working to make positive change. It paints a clear picture of the unfolding and complex issue, and inspires us to take action to #BreakFreeFromPlastic.
