Film Screening: Sustainable Westford

03/04/2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm PST

Film Screening with post Q & A

“In the center of the Pacific Ocean gyre our researchers found more plastic than plankton. A Plastic Ocean documents the newest science, proving how plastics, once they enter the oceans, break up into small particulates that enter the food chain where they attract toxins like a magnet. These toxins are stored in seafood’s fatty tissues, and eventually consumed by us.”

 

Chips & Dip & Crostinis 

Please thank our food sponsor Evviva Cucina!

 

Door prizes given out to 5 lucky winners!
