A Plastic Ocean
is a new feature-length adventure documentary that brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle. We thought we could use plastic once and throw it away with negligible impact to humans and animals. That turns out to be untrue.
In A Plastic Ocean,
an international team of adventurers, researchers, and world-saving heroes on an expedition around the globe that delves into the unknown lurking beneath our seemingly pristine and remote waters.
The results will astound viewers–just as it did our adventurers–who captured never-before-seen images of marine life, plastic pollution, and its ultimate consequences for human health.
During its four-year production period, A Plastic Ocean was filmed in 20 locations around the world in beautiful and chilling detail to document the global effects of plastic pollution–and introduce workable technology and policy solutions that can, if implemented in time, change things for the better.
Plastic Oceans Ltd. is a Hong Kong-based charitable organisation that is dedicated to protecting and preserving the environment, with a special focus on plastics and our oceans. The organisation works to educate the public about the need for change and persuade industry to take responsibility in the manufacturing/disposal processes.
