Event description
Zero Waste YYC Meetup - "Tapped" Documentary Screening and Discussion

About this Event

Join Plastic-Free YYC at The Apothecary in Inglewood on Tuesday, March 3rd for a special screening of the documentary “Tapped”.

The high cost -- to both the environment and our health -- of bottled water is the subject of this documentary that enlists activists, environmentalists, community leaders and others to expose the dark side of the bottled water industry.

Watch the trailer HERE.

This screening is extremely timely as the Government of Alberta recently approved the removal of 50 million liters per year of water from Kananaskis country for bottling purposes.

The screening will be followed by an interactive discussion with a panel of experts. You’ll get a chance to meet and ask questions to some amazing sustainability leaders including:

  • Jill Hawker, Owner of The Apothecary in Inglewood
  • Prince Agbata, Founder and CEO of Coliba Recycling, Ghana
  • Erin Bird, Lead of Fair Trade Calgary

Space is limited so make sure to register early! While we are selling tickets to this event, all attendees will receive $5 off their purchase at The Apothecary in Inglewood on the night of the event. You will have an opportunity to shop after the movie and panel.
