Stop Plastic Pollution — Start Being Part of the Solution

The Environmental Justice Committee of El Cerrito Progressives is showing the movie A Plastic Ocean Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 2:30 pm at the Berkeley Zion Presbyterian Church, 545 Ashbury Ave in  El Cerrito.

 

A Plastic Ocean is an award-winning feature length documentary by a group of dedicated scientists, film-makers, social entrepreneurs, scholars, environmentalists and journalists, that explores the fragile state of our oceans and uncovers alarming truths about the consequences of our disposable lifestyle.

The film documents the global effects of plastic pollution and highlights workable technologies and innovative solutions that everyone – from governments to individuals – can do, to create a cleaner and greener ocean.

 

After the film we will have a group discussion about, in particular, pollution from single use plastics, as well as an update on the state of the El Cerrito Recycling Center now that China has stopped taking plastic trash from the United States for recycling.
