Join the world-wide Plastic Free July campaign: a month to bring awareness to plastic that ends up landfilled or littering our environment with a goal of reaching a world free of plastic waste.
To learn more about this topic, Keep Blackstone Valley Beautiful (KBVB) is excited to announce a FREE virtual screening of the movie “The Story Of Plastic”.
This feature-length documentary looks at the man-made crisis of plastic pollution and the worldwide effect it has on the health of our planet and the people who inhabit it. Plastic waste is a growing problem but can be lessened with individual changes as easy as choosing to refuse single use plastics.
To stream the movie, participates must request the link at KeepBlackstoneValleyBeautiful.com. Attendees can view the movie safely in their home anytime until Wednesday July 22, 2020.
And to bring this to Rhode Island, KBVB is hosting a follow up zoom discussion on July 22nd from 7-8 PM EST. Let’s share how we can break free from using plastic and help end plastic pollution starting with our communities.
For Pawtucket residents, Councilwoman Vasquez, The City of Pawtucket, and KBVB have partnered together to offer a FREE canvas reusable shopping bag to begin ending single use plastic in Pawtucket – one bag at time.
Once registered, these Pawtucket residents will be able to pick up their free bag at City Hall Monday or Wednesday by appointment only. Mega Disposal and RI Resource Recovery were instrumental to help fund this program.
Viewing is limited -- reserve your spot now. For more information, contact Donna Kaehler at email@example.com or 401-724-2200.
