Award-winning Documentary "A Plastic Ocean" To Screen In Ship Bottom

(SHIP BOTTOM, NJ) -- A screening of A Plastic Ocean will take place on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at the Ship Bottom Fire House. This is an award-winning documentary that uncovers the shocking truth about what is truly lurking beneath the ocean’s surface in an effort to raise public awareness about our overuse of plastics and how we can reverse this devastating epidemic.  Several organizations will take part in an informative pollution solutions tabling session from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, followed by the screening.

Clean Ocean Action and the Lighthouse International Film Festival are collaborating with local groups including: Alliance for a Living Ocean, Garden Club of Long Beach Island, Town of Long Beach, ReClam the Bay and Ship Bottom Volunteer Fire Company to present this powerful film. Clean Ocean Action asks attendees to bring their own reusable beverage container to reduce litter at the event. 

More than 8 million tons of plastic are dumped into our oceans each year. A Plastic Ocean follows an international team of adventurers, researchers and ocean ambassadors on a mission around the globe. This award-winning documentary shows the disastrous effects of our disposable lifestyle on marine life and the consequences for human health. CAUTION: The tragic images of suffering and dying wildlife are disturbing and may not be appropriate for children.

During its four-year production period, A Plastic Ocean was filmed in 20 locations around the world, documenting the global effects of plastic pollution and introducing workable technology and policy solutions that can, if implemented in time, change things for the better.   

Clean Ocean Action (COA) obtained screening rights to the film and is partnering with regional groups to highlight this chronic problem and to inform citizens about how they can be the solution to pollutionThe screening is made possible by the generous support of the Marta Heflin Foundation.
