A Plastic Ocean
We live in a world of plastic. Plastic isn't fantastic and neither is the current state of our environment.
Humans have been mass-producing plastic since the 1950s. We produce hundred of millions of tonnes of plastic every year and production is increasing. Unfortunately, most of it is used only once and then thrown away.
Only a small proportion of plastic is recycled. The majority ends up in landfill or, in the worst case scenario, our oceans.
A Plastic Ocean is a documentary film directed by the Australian journalist Craig Leeson. It dives into and investigates the devastating impacts that plastic has caused to our environment, especially our marine life.
