Please join Meaningful Movies Port Townsend on Monday, September 10 for our screening of A Plastic Ocean, co-sponsored by North Olympic Sierra Club.

A Plastic Ocean begins when journalist Craig Leeson, searching for the elusive blue whale, discovers plastic waste in what should be pristine ocean. In this adventure documentary, Craig teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers, and they travel to twenty locations around the world over the next four years to explore the fragile state of our oceans, uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect.

We’ll be joined by Heather Trim of Zero Waste Washington and other experts to help us understand what we can all do immediately as well as what longer-term plans are being implemented to address this vital issue.

Special Guests: Heather Trim, Executive Director of Zero Waste Washington, and other local experts

Sponsors: Meaningful Movies Port Townsend, North Olympic Sierra Club, QUUF Green Sanctuary Environmental Action Committee, and QUUF Social and Environmental Justice Council

    Seattle Times has an article 9/9/18 about a 2000-foot floating boom that is being tested for cleaning up the world’s largest garbage patch located in the Pacific Ocean. https://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/massive-boom-will-corral-pacific-oceans-plastic-trash/
