The Story of Plastic free virtual screening and discussion debrief 7.28.20

SVR hosted free a virtual film screening and led a community discussion to gather feedback about what we can do to alleviate the issues caused by plastic pollution. The Story of Plastic illustrates how we can’t recycle our way out of the plastic pollution crisis.

We appreciated hearing from members of our local community and were inspired by their motivation and dedication to educating and empowering themselves and others. One small step at a time goes a long way in influencing others' behavior and changing public perception and attitude.

If you missed the film screening and discussion you can still take action! You can show support for the groundbreaking California Recycling and Plastic Pollution Reduction Act by singing the petition. Or you can look for other film screenings by visiting .
Wally Waste- Not Award program WILL NOT be accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year.
Due to the circumstances at hand and most schools offering distance learning, we have temporarily placed the program on hold. We hope to continue during the next school year 2021-2022, so stay tuned for updates.
Wally wishes everyone a safe back to school and don't forget to "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle"!

In the meantime we are working hard behind the scenes to support schools, teachers and students. Reach out to our team if you need assistance and check back in the following months to see what we have been up to!
