A special screening of A Plastic Ocean will take place in Broadstairs on Thursday (August 30).

Thanet Over 50’s Forum with Broadstairs Town Team have arranged the screening of the multi-award-winning film by Craig Leeson to try and raise awareness of tackling waste and ocean pollution.

Searching for the elusive blue whale, Craig and his team discover plastic waste in what should be pristine ocean. In this adventure documentary, he teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers, and they travel to twenty locations around the world over the next four years to explore the fragile state of our oceans, uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect.

A spokesman for the two isle groups said: “The problem of plastic in the ocean is a major issue for our planet. Discarded packaging and rubbish are everywhere too; patchy recycling and non-biodegradable items don’t help.

“Recycling, reuse and reducing waste is everyone’s responsibility.”

The film will be shown at the Palace Cinema, Broadstairs, at 6pm.

Tickets, costing £5, are available via  www.wegottickets.com or www.thepalacecinema.co.uk
