Location Details:
Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists’ Hall | 1924 Cedar Street, Berkeley, CA 94709

Join Transition Berkeley for a film screening of Smog of the Sea, followed by a discussion with San Francisco’s Senior Commercial Zero Waste Coordinator, Jack Macy, who will share info about local efforts to reduce single use plastics. Smog of the Sea follows the crew of @5Gyres SEA change research expedition, as they discover that the great ocean garbage patch is actually a “fog” of microplastics – trillions of barely visible shards – permeating the world’s oceans. The crew includes renowned surfers Keith & Dan Malloy, musician Jack Johnson, spearfisher woman Kimi Werner, and bodysurfer Mark Cunningham. Using sparkling underwater cinematography and live-action footage of the crew’s research, Smog of the Sea makes an artful call to action for rethinking single-use plastic.

Attendees are invited to meet and greet and asked to bring healthy snacks to share if possible. The film will begin at 7:00 and discussion will follow, as well as hands-on opportunities to create alternatives to plastic packaging.
