Repair Cafe

Repair Cafes are free meeting places, and they’re all about fixing things, rather than throwing them away. At the Repair Cafe, you’ll find the tools and materials to help you make any repairs you need. You’ll also find repair specialists to help you, such as electricians, seamstresses, jewelry experts, carpenters, and general fix-it folks. They usually meet on the 3rd Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Oak Park Senior Citizens’ Center, 414 S. Oak Park Ave., in Oak Park.

Screening 'A Plastic Oean'

Screening 'A Plastic Oean'

Sally Stovall Memorial Plastic-Free Summer Screening of ‘A Plastic Ocean’ will be followed by discussion about how to live a plastic-free life. Make reservations at richard.alton@gmail.com.

FILM DESCRIPTIOIN: In the center of the Pacific Ocean gyre our researchers found more plastic than plankton. A Plastic Ocean documents the newest science, proving how plastics, once they enter the oceans, break up into small particulates that enter the food chain where they attract toxins like a magnet. These toxins are stored in seafood’s fatty tissues, and eventually consumed by us. 

During its four-year production period, A Plastic Ocean was filmed in 20 locations around the world in beautiful and chilling detail to document the global effects of plastic pollution–and introduce workable technology and policy solutions that can, if implemented in time, change things for the better.
