In the center of the Pacific Ocean gyre, researchers found more plastic than plankton.“A Plastic Ocean” tells the story of how plastics, once they enter the oceans, break up into small particulates that enter the food chain where they attract toxins like a magnet. These toxins are stored in seafood’s fatty tissues and eventually consumed by us. The film also offers hopeful ideas, based on new technology and on policy changes, for reducing single-use plastics and keeping plastic out of the environment, in order to restore the health of our oceans and marine life.

Plastic Oceans Foundation is a global charitable organization that aims to change the worlds’ attitude to plastic in a single generation. The organization aims to limit the demand for non-essential plastic, using the Ocean as a litmus test to monitor the impact of this man-made pollution crisis on human health.
