Celebrating Global Recycling dat with a screening of WHY PLASTIC? The Recycling Myth at Firetti Contemporary in Dubai
In collaboration with The Why Foundation, Firetti Contemporary, and Co-Creating the Future, The Umbrella Institute screens “WHY PLASTIC? – The Recycling Myth”
It is a documentary that highlights the global systemic challenges of plastic waste. It showcases how the entire system has holes that need to be closed for recycling to be a viable solution to the current waste situation.
WHY PLASTIC? – The Recycling Myth is a three-part documentary series that will bust the myths and misinformation, taking a closer look at what is fact and what is fiction. Each film focuses on a different aspect of plastic pollution: Recycling, Human Health, and The Industry.
The Why believe that civic education is a critical step in addressing social issues and effecting change. A documentary film is a powerful tool, helping to convey important information and spread knowledge. WHY PLASTIC? will help to create a nuanced, factual debate around plastic pollution and the problems connected to it, such as the climate crisis, environmental justice, and public health.
