Watch “Plastic Paradise" at Lyonia Environmental Center. Thousands of miles away from civilization, Midway Atoll is one of the most remote places on earth, yet it has become ground zero for The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, syphoning plastics from three distant continents. In this independent documentary film, journalist/filmmaker Angela Sun travels on a personal journey of discovery to uncover this mysterious phenomenon. Along the way she meets scientists, researchers, influencers and volunteers who shed light on the effects of our immense plastic consumption and learns the problem is more much worse than we could have ever imagined. This film does show some disturbing scenes and is recommended for older audiences. Popcorn is provided free. Drinks and snacks will be available for purchase.
