A Documentary Highlights the Importance of Recycling Plastic

Still not convinced that recycling is a worthwhile endeavour?

A Plastic Ocean takes a close look at the devastating effect plastic pollution has on the ocean and marine life.

Explorers Craig Leeson and Tanya Streeter and a team of international scientists travelled to 20 locations over four years to document the waste in our oceans. If the imagery doesn’t force you to reconsider your stance on recycling, the facts definitely will. How does nearly 300 pieces of plastic found in the stomach of a 90-day old bird sound?

A Plastic Ocean goes way beyond showcasing the problem. It also highlights the causes and attempts to find a solution.

Watch it now on Netflix SA, or buy it online from the Plastic Ocean Foundation. All proceeds made from this movie go toward funding the foundation.

Plastic Oceans is a global network of independent not-for-profits and charitable organizations, united in their aims to change the world’s attitude towards plastic within a generation. There are currently four Plastic Oceans Foundation entities: United States, Canada, Hong Kong and United Kingdom serving both the ocean and the public.
