Sustainability in Focus — Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

Tuesday, August 21st, 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM EDT

You are cordially invited to our next ISSP-NYC Sustainability in Focus film screening and networking reception. We are delighted to present Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, an award-winning documentary that reveals the destructive impacts of our enormous plastic consumption. 

Thousands of miles away from civilization, Midway Atoll is in one of the most remote places on earth. And yet it has become ground zero for the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch,” receiving plastics from three distant continents. In this independent documentary film, journalist/filmmaker Angela Sun travels on a journey of discovery to uncover this mysterious phenomenon. Along the way she meets scientists, researchers, influencers, and volunteers who shed light on our massive consumption of plastics and its devastation of our seas and marine life.

After an expert panel discussion, the evening closes with a networking reception.
