A PLASTIC OCEAN, AWARD WINNING DOCUMENTARY
COMING TO SOLOMONS, MARYLAND
Special Screening on January 19 at the Calvert Marine Museum
The Calvert Marine Museum is hosting a special screening of the award winning documentary “A Plastic Ocean” on Thursday, January 19 at 7 p.m. The public is invited to this free screening, followed by a short discussion.
“A Plastic Ocean” uncovers the shocking truth about what is truly lurking beneath the ocean’s surface. Did you know that more than eight million tons of plastic are dumped into our oceans each year? This film follows an international team of adventurers, researchers, and ocean ambassadors on a mission around the globe and shows the devastating effects of our disposable lifestyle on marine life and the consequences for human health.
During its four-year production period, “A Plastic Ocean” was filmed in 20 locations around the world. It has documented the global effects of plastic pollution and introduced workable technology and policy solutions that can change things, if implemented in time. For more information, contact Dave Moyer at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the website at http://www.plasticoceans.org.
The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $9.00 for adults, $7.00 for seniors, military with valid I.D. and AAA members, and $4.00 for children ages 5 - 12; children under 5 and museum members are always admitted free.
