Dianna Cohen, CEO and Co-Founder
The Plastic Pollution Coalition is working to help END our cycle of plastics use - yes - END! Dianna was inspired to co-found the group by her work as an artist because her chosen material is the ubiquitous plastic bag. In one bio I read about her she writes: "Having worked with the plastic bag as my primary material for the past fifteen years, all of the obvious references to recycling, first-world culture, class, high and low art give way to an almost formal process which reflects the unique flexibility of the medium." With the Plastic Pollution Coalition, she helps to raise awareness of ocean waste -- the majority of which is nondegradable plastic -- and everyday strategies to cut down the amount of plastic we use and throw away. This show was made possible due to the generous support of The Fairfax Companies.

Imagine Life Without Plastic
Jay Sinha, Co-founder and Co-Owner
This is a first for me I believe. Life Without Plastic‘s tagline is: one-stop shop for safe, high quality, ethically-sourced, Earth-friendly alternatives to plastic products for everyday life. In other words, it’s a business. But here’s what got to me. The story of the founders, Jay and Chantal, is really about people and nature. It is about how plastic has caused deep problems for both since its arrival in the 1940s. It is also about the power of LIGHT. You have to trust me on this one. This company/couple are activists for a plastic-free planet who are working hard to bring us safe, high quality, ethically-sourced, Earth friendly alternatives to plastic products. They are clearly committed to raising awareness about plastics issues by providing solid science- and experience-based information and showing people, one person at a time, the beauty and simplicity of a life without plastic. Got your attention? I hope so. This show made possible through the generous support of the Chapman Automotive Group.

Years ago in the 60's and 70's a brilliant marketing campaign was launched for Naugahyde which is actually fake leather.
The ad campaign went as far to claim that Naugahyde came from the hide of an animal called a "Nauga" and the ad claimed: The Nauga is ugly but his vinyl hide is beautiful.".
And Uniroyal Engineered Products who manufactured and marketed Naugahyde even claimed that unlike other animals the Nauga didn't have to be slaughtered for its hide because they shed their hides!
Well in reality it's vinyl or plastic in other words artificial leather.
Now this word plastic is from the Greek word "plastikos" which means something and may I add someone who is capable of being shaped or molded!
Hence the title of today's message: Plastic Christians
But today, we'll look at reality because if there’s anything this world is hungering for its reality.
People are seeking reality and there's a great hunger on everyone's heart to KNOW Jesus Christ whether they know it or not..
Now get this that hunger is not only to know ABOUT Him, but to KNOW Him and to have reality.
And our focus scripture speaks on that subject.
Proverbs 21:28, “A false witness shall perish: but the man that heareth speaketh constantly”
So today we'll deal with the false witness, and the faithful witness, breaking it right down the middle.
And in essence that's the fatality of a false witness and the reality of a faithful witness.
