Free Movie Screening - Blue Vinyl: The World's First Toxic Comedy
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
With humor, chutzpah, and a piece of vinyl siding firmly in hand, Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Judith Helfand and co-director Daniel B. Gold travel to America’s vinyl manufacturing capital and beyond in search of the truth about vinyl, the world's second largest selling plastic.
Although the film “Blue Vinyl” was released in 2002, it remains relevant today as vinyl chloride persists in American products, threatening the health of consumers, the communities surrounding PVC production facilities, and those living along railways that transport the dangerous chemical... Hint: East Palestine, Ohio
The PVC plastic made from vinyl chloride is used to make everything from the iconic rubber ducky and other children's toys to pipes, floor coverings, shower curtains, raincoats, and vinyl siding. Fortunately, there are safer alternatives to PVC.
This film keeps with the theme of Earth Day 2024, 'Planet over Plastics', reafirming the urgency to reduce global plastic pollution and ensure a more sustainable future.
The screening is free, but RSVP is highly recommended to ensure the appropriate number of seats available. Visit www.chgreenteam.org to RSVP
A short Q&A will follow.
