Movies that Matter
Beaches Go Green (BGG) is partnering with the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) to present the “Movies that Matter” educational series. We will be presenting FREE inspirational & educational documentaries to the beach community sponsored by local business partners. We will host a resource panel to answer questions and discuss related topics before and after the film. Movies will be scheduled quarterly with multiple viewings when possible. Please see our events tab for details.
We want to change the world’s attitude towards plastic within a generation.
The problem of plastic pollution is growing exponentially every year; we are producing more than 300 million tons of plastic, half of this is designed for single use, and each year around 8 million tons of it ends up in our oceans. We can solve this problem and we can do it by educating and engaging everyone in a conversation to rethink plastic. Plastic Oceans is working to change the way we deal with plastic waste by challenging society’s perception that this indestructible substance can be treated as ‘disposable’.

Plastic Oceans International engages people of all ages, in all social situations, to understand the danger of continuing to perceive plastic to be disposable. Once they become aware of the ultimate threat to human health, it will become a personal choice to prevent plastic waste from entering the environment. We have tackled this issue, through an awareness campaign using film and media reaching millions of people around the world. We will continue to spread the message of the positive solutions we can apply to stop the negative impact of plastic using film and supportive activism to engage students through education, industries through entrepreneurship and partnering with global organizations actively changing their communities.
