About the Award-Winning Documentary A Plastic Ocean
We no longer manage the licensing of the documentary , A Plastic Ocean. …..We also no longer benefit from rentals or purchase of the film.
However, it is an important film that we encourage all people to experience in order to learn about why the issue of plastic pollution is so important!
