Virtual Screening Of The Story Of Plastic Thursday

Join the Newport Chapter of Surfrider Foundation, Oregon Sea Grant, Hatfield Marine Science Center Green Team, Thompson's Sanitary, and the Oregon Coast Aquarium for a free virtual screening of The Story of Plastic Thursday June 11 at 6:30 pm, followed by a Q&A panel discussion. The Story of Plastic brings into focus an alarming, man-made crisis and the heroes who are working every day to rise up against big plastic. After the film, learn more from our panelists about efforts underway in Oregon to reduce plastics and ways that you can get involved.

The panel will include:

  • Cait Goodwin, Oregon Sea Grant

  • Aimee Thompson, Thompson's Sanitary 

  • Brandon Trelstad, Oregon State University

  • Facilitated by Charlie Plybon, Oregon Policy Manager, Surfrider Foundation

Attendees will receive a link to stream the film from the event host 48 hours before the event start time. The link will be delivered to you at the email address you use to RSVP. In that same email, you will also receive zoom info for the panel discussion.


Attendees at the panel discussion will be entered into a raffle. The Newport Chapter of Surfrider has purchased five gift certificates from local businesses that will be raffled off. Those businesses include Panini Bakery, Coast & Vine, Zugh Life Surf Shop, Lincoln City Surf Shop, and Bier One.
