Global North Plastic Pile-up in Southeast Asia
This summer, Story of Stuff Campaigns Director Stiv Wilson traveled throughout Southeast Asia to see first-hand the brutal realities of worldwide plastic disposal on a research mission for a new Story of Stuff film, The Story of Plastic. Join us to hear Stivs report-back from this eventful trip and view astonishing photos of coastal fishing villages and large, industrial-scale waste sites. He will share stories from the Asian frontlines of plastic pollution, where he worked with a grassroots network of nonprofits and community groups to access places and facilities otherwise invisible to US citizens. Stiv will share insights about the sources of the plastic waste piling up in Asia  including US recyclables  and will bust some myths of the modern plastics industry.

BIO: Stiv Wilson brings over a decade of experience in grassroots advocacy, systems innovation, and campaign strategy to The Story of Stuff Project. His role at The Story of Stuff  Project is to design, execute, and lead community-sourced campaigns to measurable conservation victories. Stiv is a waste and plastic pollution expert who frequently asked to speak on Solutions to the vexing inefficiencies in the materials economy all over the world. Hes created and led several campaigns to victory: from plastic bags bans, to plastic microbeads, to plastic water bottles at the state, national and international level. Hes sailed over 35,000 nautical miles to four of the five oceanic garbage patches, documenting and communicating maritime plastic pollution firsthand.
