Film Showing and Discussion: Our Synthetic Sea

"Our Synthetic Sea" is the award-winning documentary film on the tragic pollution of plastics in the Pacific Ocean. Algalita Marine Research Foundation commissioned this film based on the voyages and investigations of Captain Charles Moore, who found that the amount of plastic debris in the middle of the Pacific is six times greater than
zooplankton. The implications for human health and the whole web of life are just being faced, while society still uses as much petroleum as possible, in its various convenient and toxic forms, to create and display "wealth." Come join us for the film and for a lively discussion about alternatives.

Time: 7pm - 9pm.
Location: Ecology Center, 2530 San Pablo Ave, near Dwight Way, Berkeley.
Cost: Free.
