A film screening of Smog of the Sea, followed by a discussion with San Francisco’s Senior Commercial Zero Waste Coordinator, Jack Macy, who will share info about local efforts to reduce single use plastics. Smog of the Sea follows the crew of @5Gyres SEA change research expedition, as they discover that the great ocean garbage patch is actually a “fog” of microplastics – trillions of barely visible shards – permeating the world’s oceans. Attendees are invited to meet and greet and asked to bring healthy snacks to share. The film will begin at 7:00 and discussion will follow, as well as hands-on opportunities to create alternatives to plastic packaging. Cost: $5-$10 sliding scale donation at the door, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
