The Kent Energy and Environmental Task Force will present a screening of "Addicted to Plastic" and a lecture Feb. 21 at 7:30 p.m.

The event will be held at Kent School's Dickinson Science Building Auditorium on Route 341 in Kent.

The point-of-view style documentary encompasses three years of filming in 12 countries on five continents, including two trips to the middle of the Pacific Ocean where plastic debris accumulates.

The film details plastic's path over the last 100 years and provides interviews on practical and cutting-edge solutions to recycling, toxicity and biodegradability.
