Energy Group Offers Documentary, Discussion of Plastic Pollution

Both are available via the internet

By Susan Chase

Area residents are invited by the Andover Energy Group to watch a new documentary film, “The Story of Plastic,” by streaming it at their convenience during the period of October 12 to 26.

The film takes a sweeping look at the crisis of plastic pollution and the worldwide effect it has on the health of our planet and the people who inhabit it. It distills a complex problem that is increasingly affecting the planet’s and its residents’ well-being and asks the question, “What can companies, countries, and people do to fix these problems?”

“The Story of Plastic” is presented by The Story of Stuff Project, a non-profit dedicated to changing the way that we make, use, and throw away Stuff so that it is more sustainable, healthy and fair.

After watching the film, residents are encouraged to join a follow-up Zoom discussion at 7 PM on Monday, October 26, co-sponsored with Kearsarge Climate Action, to share ideas of what local residents can do to be part of the global fight to end plastic pollution. Interested residents can e-mail and ask to be given the streaming link to the film and the Zoom link for the follow-up discussion. 


The Andover Energy Group is a volunteer group of Andover residents that has been working since 2011 to increase the energy efficiency of the town and its residents.
