Every year millions of tons of plastics end up in our oceans, the same waters that we fish from. Microplastics have been found in the seafood sold for human consumption, and you can learn more about this problem at EarthFest at a screening of A Plastic Ocean (320 to 520pm). If you missed the film at last year’s SGEFF, here’s another chance to catch it! Get your tickets at: http://plasticocean.peatix.com

Made from plastic waste collected from Singapore’s coastlines, creating an elevated viewing platform on which audiences can observe kinetic plastic-waste waves, it explores this global issue, highlighting the interdependency of individual activities.
