Free Screening: A Plastic Ocean; We need a Wave of Change

PARSIPPANY — The Parsippany Environmental Advisory Committee and the Parsippany-Troy Hills Public Library is hosting a free screening and discussion, “A Plastic Ocean.”

This screening will take place on Wednesday, October 10 at 6:30 p.m. at the Parsippany-Troy Hills Public Library, 449 Halsey Road.

A Plastic Ocean is an award winning adventure documentary that begins with a search for the elusive blue whale and discovers plastic waste in what should be pristine ocean. An international team of scientists and researchers travel to twenty locations around the world over four years and uncover alarming fragile state of our oceans and uncover alarming solutions that can be put into immediate effect.

More than 8 million tons of plastic is dumped into the ocean each year. We use an estimated 1 trillion plastic bags each year – that’s nearly 2 million per minute! One in three species of marine mammal have been entangled in marine litter.
