Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

Sustainability@ASU

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, siphoning plastics from three distant continents. Please join us for a free film screening of Plastic Paradise, a film that follows journalist/ filmmaker Angela Sun as she seeks to uncover the cause of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

View the trailer here.

Dawn Ratcliffe, Recycling Coordinator for the City of Tempe, will host a post-film discussion.

Free parking is available at the Brickyard Parking Garage. Bring your ticket and the theater will validate at the concessions stand.
