A Plastic Ocean is a new feature-length adventure documentary that brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle. Explorers Craig Leeson and Tanya Streeter and a team of international scientists reveal the causes and consequences of plastic pollution and share solutions. 

The team is headed by film producer Jo Ruxton, who was involved in some epic programs in the past including groundbreaking productions

such as Blue Planet, Pacific Abyss, and LIFE.  Accompanied by scientists, conservationists and engineers, the film follows the journey of two explorers as they travel to some of the most remote parts of the world, documenting the environmental issues associated with plastic pollution and its impact on the environment, ecosystems and human health. This film will play a key role in sending out the message to the world.

FREE SCREENING-spread the word!
