On Friday 21 September at 7.00 pm St Peter’s Church and Transition Belper will be holding a special screening of the Film “A Plastic Ocean.”
Fans of ‘Blue Planet’ will love this powerful documentary, made by the US not-for-profit organisation, Plastic Oceans. The film shows the scale of plastic pollution and inspires viewers to make positive changes for the environment.
This is what the Plastic Ocean Foundation has to say about our use of plastic:-
Every year we are producing more than 300 million tons of plastic, half of this is designed for single use, and each year around 8 million tons of it ends up in our oceans. Plastic Oceans is working to change the way we deal with plastic waste by challenging society’s perception that this indestructible substance can be treated as ‘disposable’.
‘A Plastic Ocean’ covers the key topics that have been making news headlines all over the world – how has plastic made it to the ocean, and what impact is it having? It also seeks to find solutions, and show people that we have the power to turn the tide.
This documentary will appeal to anyone with a passion for the natural world, and empower viewers to make the small changes that can have a big impact.
Doors open at 7.00pm for refreshments with the film starting at 7.30pm Just turn up, no booking required. The film is 102 minutes long.
This is a free event, however donations towards the costs would be very welcome.
