Sustainability Film Series

April 20 @ 7:00 pm EDT

The MTU Sustainability Film Series will screen The Plastic Problem in 144 Noblet of the Forestry Building. Dr. David Shonnard in the MTU Dept. of Chemical Engineering, and Bre Tucker, co-owner of Refill UP, will be the discussion facilitators. The Copper Country Recycling Initiative will provide refreshments, coffee and tea. All are welcome.

The Plastic Problem explores the issue of plastic pollution, now considered one of the largest environmental threats facing humans and animals globally. By 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans – an environmental crisis that’s been in the making for nearly 70 years. Amna Nawaz and her PBS NewsHour colleagues interview two of the world’s biggest plastic producers, The Coca-Cola Company and Unilever, to find out what they’re doing to address the problem. The film examines the effectiveness of plastic bans, bacteria that eat plastic, a young inventor who has made an alternative to plastic wrap out of beer brewing by-products, and a startup making plastic roads. Find out how you can be a part of the solution.
