Free Movie Night! (9/18, 6 PM)

First of an ongoing series...
Free Movie Night!

Wednesday, September 18, 6 PM
Tech Room 114
KCC Campus
(Mauka of the KCC Performing Arts Center parking lot)

Plastic Planet will be shown and, directly following, we will host Beth Terry, the author of the My Plastic Free Life blog for a discussion.
After learning about the devastating effects of plastic pollution on the environment and human health, Oakland accountant Beth Terry began an experiment to see if she could live without buying any plastic. Since then, she has reduced her plastic waste to less than 2% of the national average. That experiment turned into the popular blog and new book Plastic-Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too.
Free screening is provided by a partnership between Ho‘ouluwehiZero Waste Kauai, and Apollo Kauai.
