Event description

Description

A Plastic Ocean is an adventure film in which searchers for the elusive blue whale find instead oceans filled with plastic waste. Incredibly captivating, beautiful and moving, the film rethinks our everyday use of plastics - from shopping bags, straws and plastic tableware to food containers. Over time, most of this plastic breaks down into tiny pieces invisible to the naked eye, which are consumed by marine wildlife and contaminate the food we eat. These microplastics pose a serious risk to ocean and human health worldwide.

Doors open at 6:00 pm with refreshments and socializing. The 22-minute educational film starts at 6:30 pm. Afterward, there will be a discussion of causes, and practical ways to react to this pollution.

Please bring information or a sample of your favorite eco-friendly product to show the group.

Kids are welcome! Bring a clean used plastic container such as a bottle or yogurt cup to make a ‘trash turtle’.
