The Audubon Society of Lincoln City will mark Rise Above Plastics Month with a free screening of “Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch” this Saturday, May 4, at the Bijou Theatre.
This engaging documentary begins by reminding viewers that every single piece of plastic that has ever been created since the 19th Century is still somewhere on the planet, before asking: “If it never goes away, where does it go?”
“This timely and informative documentary follows a young and engaging female investigative journalist as she travels to the mid-Pacific to learn about the garbage patch and its impact on the environment,” said Audubon’s Steve Griffiths. “Throughout, she sets just the right tone — telling and showing us the bad news of plastic — and letting us know what we as individuals can do about it.”
The screening will start at 11 am at 1624 NE Hwy. 101, Lincoln City.
