I’m playing Downhill From Everywhere every night and I see a willingness on the part of the audience to be engaged on the subject of plastic. But a song is a limited venue for in-depth discussion of what to do about it. That’s why it’s so great that The Story of Plastic has connected so many people with the issues and the strategies being employed in the struggle to stop the plastic scourge.

– Jackson Browne, Musician

Big thank you to Discovery for making this important film accessible to everyone leading up to celebrate the Emmy nomination and win. It is so important to illuminate the work being done by activists, both in the US and around the world, to solve the plastic pollution crisis and effect meaningful systems change.

– Dianna Cohen, CEO of Plastic Pollution Coalition
