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!
We aim to educate Canadians to become plastic literate, so they can make informed decisions about how and when they accept plastic and challenge society’s perception that this indestructible substance can be treated as ‘disposable’.
*We must solve the problem within a Generation*

To carry out activities ancillary and incidental to the above charitable purposes
“There is no away – because plastic is so permanent and so indestructible. When you cast it into the ocean, it doesn’t go away.”

Exposures to these chemicals have been suggested to contribute to some cancers, and infertility, as well as immune, metabolic, cognitive and behavioural disorders. The entry of plastic pieces into our food chain is of concern to human health.
With the longest coastline in the world, but several provinces without any ocean borders, we serve all aquatic environments around and within Canada and all the people who rely on and utilize those environments.
