We've been waiting for this film describing the tireless work of Blue Wave, a project of Sea Turtles Forever (where Dr. Nichols is a board member).
Some people have proposed multi-million dollar ocean cleanup schemes to start in 2020. We're not waiting around for that, Blue Wave has started already!
By understanding where the mircoplastics make landfall we can deploy hundreds of teams with filter screens to do the work.
People, jobs, outdoor time, exercise, plastic pollution cleanup, and no waiting around for engineers and mega-donors.

Filtering a Plastic Ocean from North Shore Productions on Vimeo.
Filtering A Plastic Ocean profiles ocean activist Marc Ward and his simple invention that removes toxic microplastics from the beach, and therefore the ocean. The film explores the impact these tiny plastics have on marine wildlife and human health, and shows how this groundbreaking technique is making beaches safe for people around the world. Produced and directed by Rory Banyard at North Shore Productions, Inc., in Portland, Oregon. Filtering A Plastic Ocean premiered at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival in January 2016.
We are now developing a full-length documentary about ocean plastics – to learn more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
