“A Plastic Ocean” – free movie screening
This month Goumbook is celebrating the first anniversary of it’s latest initiative: Drop It – Say NO to Plastic (bottles).
It has been a very rewarding and passionate year: we have done many awareness sessions in corporate offices and schools, we have had many companies and individuals switching to filtered tap water in their offices or at home, and we are slowly but surely changing mindsets.
All this would have never been possible without the support of all the community and this is why we would like to celebrate this first year with all of you with a free movie screening on May 22nd 2017 at Madinat Theatre (Souk Madinat Jumeirah).
This event will start at 3,30pm with a panel discussion, followed by a Q&A session, and an awards ceremony to thank our partners and reward our members who have supported the initiative since the beginning: we all share the same values and believe in making a change and preserving our environment.
We will also have a Lucky Draw to give the chance to the public to win plastic free and environmentally friendly prizes.
The movie will then start at 4,30 pm
We look forward to seeing you all there!
