Food and Film Series: Oil and Water @ Vancouver Community Library

Our second film of the Food & Film Series 2019 will be, Oil & Water. This documentary shows the true story of two boys coming of age as they each confront one of the world’s worst toxic disasters. Hugo and David were born on opposite ends of the oil pipeline. Hugo comes to America to fight for the survival of his Cofan tribe in the Ecuadorian Amazon, while David goes to Ecuador to launch the world’s first company to certify oil as “fair trade.” Their journeys lead them to explore what could be a more just future, not just for the Cofan, but for all people around the world born with oil beneath their feet.

 

Thanks to Vancouver Pizza Company for a generous discount, we are able to offer free pizza! GF and Vegan pizza will be available. 

Doors open at 5:30 and pizza is available at 6:00. Make sure you get there in time to get pizza!

Don’t Drip and Drive at Unitarian Universalist Church of Vancouver

Whether your home one block or several from a stream, river or lake, what starts in your driveway can end up as toxic stormwater runoff and contribute to water pollution. According to a study by the WA Department of Ecology, an estimated 600,000 quarts of motor oil and fluids leak into our SW Washington watersheds each year.

To increase their sustainability efforts, we’ve partnered up with Unitarian Universalist Church of Vancouver to offer free oil leak checks. No previous automotive experience is required! We will provide all instructions at the on-site volunteer orientation. To learn more about Don’t Drip and Drive, click here.
