A Plastic Ocean (102 minutes)   2016 NEW

Focusing on plastic pollution in the ocean, this documentary takes a very real, hard look at the effects of plastic on marine wildlife. If you are a little squeamish, be prepared as they do show graphic images of birds and fish being gutted with plastic pieces filling their stomachs. Your heart will be ripped out by some of the stories you hear about the people who live on a plastic filled island with no place to go. Overall, this movie is very inspiring in a “make you depressed” kind of way but does briefly touch on ways to avoid plastic use at the end.
