Film Screening: A Plastic Ocean (MMU Go Green week)

event on
13 February
2018

Free screening as part of Manchester Metropolitan University’s Go Green Week.

In the center of the Pacific Ocean gyre our researchers found more plastic than plankton. A Plastic Ocean documents the newest science, proving how plastics, once they enter the oceans, break up into small particulates that enter the food chain where they attract toxins like a magnet. These toxins are stored in seafood’s fatty tissues, and eventually consumed by us.

Open to all staff and students. Go Green Week events are mainly targeted to staff and students at MMU but those external to the university are welcome to attend

Running time: 22 minutes.

Book your place via Eventbrite.

Venue: Manchester Metropolitan University Business School, LT G34, Manchester
