Sustainable Practices Screening: Divide in Concord
Sunday, April 8
Join Sustainable Practices in the Marc Jacobs Reading Room for a special screening of Divide in Concord on Sunday, April 8 at 2:00 pm.
Divide in Concord is a feature-length documentary that follows the entertaining tale of banning bottled water in small-town America. In 1775, Concord patriots fired the infamous ‘shot heard round the world’ that began a Revolution and defined a nation. Now a local eighty-four-year-old woman has waged another seemingly unwinnable battle. For three years Jean Hill has been trying to rid the town of single-serve plastic bottles of water. Complete with strong opposition from local merchants and the bottled water industry, Jean is once again leading the controversial crusade.
