Green Move Night is Back in July!
The next Green Movie Night will be Friday, July 13th, at 7:00 p.m. when we will be showing "Tapped" a provocative look at the many down-sides of bottled water--and how citizens are beginning to rise up and push back. By shining a light on threats to community water sources, risks to human health, pollution of the oceans, and mountains of plastic trash, Tapped sounds a clarion call to kick the bottle and return to the tap. And it calls on governments to fulfill their crucial role as custodians of the public trust in water."
