Free Film – A PLASTIC OCEAN
August 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Free Film and discussion hosted by the Havre de Grace Green Team
It can’t really be avoided any longer. Single-use plastics are a human addiction that we must face head on. Plastic pollution is not only impacting our waters and marine life, but also the human food chain and our overall health.
In A Plastic Ocean, journalist Craig Leeson, searching for the elusive blue whale, discovers plastic waste in what should be pristine ocean. Joined by diver Tanya Streeter and a team of international scientists, he seeks to reveal the causes and consequences of plastic pollution and hopefully, inspire change – before it’s too late.
Did you know?
More than 8 million tons of plastic are dumped in our oceans every year. The proliferation of plastic products in the last 70 years or so has been extraordinary; quite simply we cannot now live without them. We are now producing nearly 300 million tons of plastic every year.
Plastic is cheap and incredibly versatile, with properties that make it ideal for many applications. However, these qualities have also resulted in it becoming an environmental issue. We have developed a “disposable” lifestyle, and estimates are that around 50% of plastic is used just once and thrown away.
