kNOw S.U.P. (No Single-Use-Plastics) hosted a screening of “A Plastic Ocean,” on Monday, June 4 at the Lincoln Theater in Damariscotta.
The film begins when journalist Craig Leeson, searching for the elusive blue whale, discovers plastic waste in what should be pristine ocean. In this adventure documentary, Craig teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers, and they travel to twenty locations around the world over the next four years to explore the fragile state of our oceans, uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect.
This event was free and open to the public thanks to Mexicali Blues, Rising Tide, Damariscotta River Association, and the Natural Resources Council of Maine.
