FREE Film screening "Plastic Paradise" at Museum of Natural History

Join the Environmental Defense Center (EDC) Community Environmental Council (CEC), Santa Barbara Channel Keepers (SBCK) and the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History to host a free screening of

“Plastic Paradise

," a multi award-winning documentary examining the accumulation of plastic pollution in our oceans. Journalist/filmmaker Angela Sun explores the truth behind the ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’, an island of plastics created from the waste of three continents, swirling around the highly-remote Midway Atoll and thousands of miles away from civilization. She discovers that these plastics, exposed to the elements, are breaking down and working themselves up the global food chain. Please join us on for these educational and inspiring events featuring local environmental organizations and a fun raffle, and pledge to reduce your use of single-use plastics!

NO CHARGE - See you there!

    Good movie! Just the right length and message. I wish everyone had to see it because I think people have no idea what's going on and what they're contributing to. Kind of depressing to think about it so I just keep moving forward, doing what I can to help.

    Yes, astounding... the information about plastics in the food chain was new to me, and I thought I was well informed. The information about BPA was also more extensive than any I've seen. GREAT piece of work!
