A Plastic Ocean

A Critical View on Our Planet’s Pollution

It’s a heart-wrenching topic, and nevertheless a beautiful and absolutely critical documentary – A Plastic Ocean. This new film follows researchers across all oceans to examine just how much plastic pollution has been accumulated in the sea, how it behaves in the water, and what it does to the biology of ocean life, from fish, to mammals, turtles and sea birds – and directly to humans as well. Life on this planet depends on the health of our oceans. A Plastic Ocean captures this connection we all share with the sea, and brings us a serious - and very visual - warning of the plastic pollution problem that we are facing. It's staggering, and yet some early solutions to this problem are being developed already, as we will hear from one of the chief scientists of the film.

    A documentary so timely, and profoundly captures the most pressing environmental issue that is plaguing the Pacific Ocean today. We see it’s impact (plastic pollution) so vividly in Solomon Islands, it’s heart wrenching, and disturbing. All should be made aware of this issue, but strong measures of controlling and managing waste disposal should come from our Pacific governments. We would like to share this story/documentary with our network of communities. How do we get a copy.
