“Away does not really mean away” – Plastic Paradise
What: Movie and Discussion // Part of November Plastic Month
When: 25 nov // 19.30
Lots of plastics are produced, but every single molecule of plastic is still on earth, due to its inability to biodegrade. Plastic Paradise is set on the island Midway which is in the middle of the Pacific ocean and is home to scientists and a large colony of albatross. The island looks idyllic, but is also home to the non-native plastic as it is in the middle of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
The documentary by Angela Sun will be concluded with a conclusion led by Jan Joris Midavaine, who cleans beaches in Zeeland and asks attention for this huge problem. Check out the event for up to date information!
