A series of free movie nights with films about sustainability will continue Nov. 10 with the documentary “Addicted to Plastic.”
The documentary will be shown at 6:30 p.m. at the King County Library Service Center Community Room, 960 Newport Way N.W. City officials said the event aims to educate the community about plastics, the effects of plastics on the environment and human health, and the plastics industry.
A panel of experts will lead a discussion on plastics and other related environmental issues after the movie. Information about eco-friendly programs, as well as refreshments provided by Cedar Grove Composting, will also be available to attendees. Organizers will give away door prizes after the film.
The free movie nights are presented by the city Resource Conservation Office and paid for through a grant from the King County Local Hazardous Waste Management Program.
