Join us for the THIRD film of our 2018 Eco Film Series!
This month, we’re thrilled to be partnering with Sustainable Westford to present the groundbreaking film, A Plastic Ocean, a poignant feature-length adventure documentary that brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle. We thought we could use plastic once and throw it away with negligible impact to humans and animals. That turns out to be untrue!
In A Plastic Ocean, an international team of adventurers, researchers, and Ocean ambassadors go on a mission around the globe to uncover the shocking truth about what is truly lurking beneath the surface of our seemingly pristine Ocean.
The results will astound viewers with never-before-seen images of marine life, plastic pollution, and its ultimate consequences for human health.
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.
Please join us as we explore this incredible discovery in our waters, and learn about ways we can work together to eventually end the use of this pollutant!
