“A Plastic Ocean” – Taiwanese Film Premiere

27th May 2017

In an unprecedented collaboration, One Brown Planet, major government, The Australian Office and major NGO organisations have come together to bring to the people of Taiwan the Chinese premiere of the film “A Plastic Ocean”. This Australian documentary investigates the current state of our oceans and the newest science concerning the magnitude of the problems that we are facing with ocean plastic pollution.

Globally we produce 300 million tonnes of plastic every year and an estimated 5 trillion plastic bags. But 80% of all this plastic ends up as landfill or as plastic pollution in the oceans. This is the equivalent of dumping 1 garbage truck full of plastic in the ocean, every minute!

A Plastic Ocean is an adventure documentary shot on more than 20 locations over the past 4 years. Explorers Craig Leeson and Tanya Streeter and a team of international scientists reveal the causes and consequences of plastic pollution and share solutions.

The Making of The World’s Largest Plastic Crochet Sea Turtle

This is the culmination of a 2-year project.

The world’s largest plastic crochet turtle is made entirely from waste plastic and was designed and made by artist Annie Hsiao-Wen Wang. The sculpture was made in the hope that it will bring attention to the issues sea turtles and other marine life endure. Every day we continue to pollute our oceans with million’s of tons of plastics and more.

Everything we do has an impact. Now that we are 7.5 billion people, tiny changes have a dramatic impact.  And for the 80% of us that live in cities, we are interconnected with the world around us. This means that everything we do has an impact that is felt somewhere else. When we drink water, aquifers are drained. When we eat food, land is cleared and pesticides sprayed. Like it or not we are in this together.

We need sustainability to be part of our everyday lifestyle.

Unfortunately, a truly environmentally friendly lifestyle is out of reach for most of us. But green living can be obtainable by all. Our aim is to make sure that sustainable living and being green is just as easy as the alternative.  Take some time to go through the site and read our stories and helpful money saving tips. Hopefully, they will inspire you and educate you, so you can appreciate what sustainable living can look like.
