A powerful documentary about the environmental impact of plastic will be screening at the Sun Theatre this month
Shot on more than 20 locations over the past four years, A Plastic Ocean is an adventure documentary by Australian journalist Craig Leeson.
The journey began when Leeson went out in search for the elusive blue whale. Upon discovering the pristine ocean had been overrun by plastic waste, Leeson teamed up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers to explore the fragile state of our oceans. This hard-hitting doco uncovers alarming truths about plastic pollution and reveals working solutions that can be put into immediate use by the wider population.
A Plastic Ocean will be screening on Wednesday June 28 at the Sun Theatre in Yarraville. Attendees will be able to purchase goods to help kick start their plastic-free life – including a discount code to nab a KeepCup. Zero-waste lifestyle blogger Erin Rhoads, known for living plastic-free for two years now, will be speaking at the screening.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to Clean Coast Collective and their 2017 Cape York Trash Tribe Expedition.
