Help me fight plastic in Skibbereen

I've been invited to meet and share information on the ecological effects of allowing a plastics manufacturing factory to move into a pristine landscape such as the people of Skibbereen, Ireland are fighting against American privately owned company RTP when their water treatment plant is already overloaded.  I've been working with Polymer Distribution Inc. in Guelph with the Ministry of the Environment for over a year and now PDI has made catch-basins, started a reclaim/recycling program, and is now beginning to clean up their huge mess in the Eramosa river.  Help me share my experience, with these grassroots plastics production watchdogs.  Keeping people informed on the imminent ecocide from the presence of plastic resin beads (the building blocks of the plastic industry) in the environment is my goal.  Multi national plastic companies need to focus more on true purpose and human values, and take the atittude of wanting to run a clean operation.  I'm working with 1 Ward Studios on documenting my trip and I'll need some financial help toward lodging, food, travel and equipment.  Anything you can donate will help!

Thank you in advance, and please share this page.
