About This Event:

This event is co-hosted by BI Zero Waste and Zero Waste Washington.

Filmmaker Carly Wilson will be present and take questions after the 80-minute documentary. Carly grew up in Bremerton and lives in Australia, where the movie was made.

Rubber Jellyfish “explores the surprising damage that helium balloons are causing to endangered marine wildlife and unravels the balloon industry greenwashing that has lead consumers to believe that latex balloons are 100% biodegradable and environmentally friendly. This has in turn lead to the popularity of balloon release ceremonies and countless animal fatalities as a result.”

After the film, in addition to a Q&A with the director, ZWW executive director Heather Trim will give a sneak preview of 2020 plastic legislation.
Light refreshments will be served.
