Earth 2 Ocean Allies holds exclusive screening of A Plastic Ocean to raise awareness of the pollution issue blighting our waters

Ringwood, Hampshire. Earth 2 Ocean Allies, a new online initiative that aims to recognise and log environmental movements in one easy-to-digest website, is hosting an exclusive screening of A Plastic Ocean (plasticoceans.org) at Ringwood Waldorf School at 7pm on Wednesday 28th March.

The ground breaking film, which sees researchers discover more plastic than plankton when analysing the Pacific Ocean gyre, beautifully highlights the current pollution problems blighting our oceans and waters.

Ali Mayes, of Earth 2 Ocean Allies, says: “We are delighted to help promote the screening of this film, and discuss how we can take action to alleviate this growing issue.”

Earth 2 Ocean Allies was formed by a group of scientists, conservationists, surfers and nature lovers that soon realised there wasn’t an easy-to-access portal that recognised good causes and initiatives both locally and globally.

The Earth 2 Ocean Allies website (Earth2OceanAllies.com), which is currently under construction, will plot these initiatives via an interactive map and will display details of how interested parties can get involved.

“We are looking for people to support this by sharing local or global initiatives with info@Earth2oceanAllies.com, so that we can actively endorse them,” explains Ali Mayes.

“It doesn’t matter how small the movement is, we want to be able to list everything from a local litter-picking group to organisations such as The Ocean Clean Up or The Blue Marine Foundation in one handy place,” she adds.

The screening of A Plastic Ocean is just one example of Earth 2 Ocean Allies bringing together groups of like-minded individuals to tackle one of the most important issues of our time.

Doors will open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start at The Ringwood Waldorf School, Folly Farm Lane, Ringwood BH24 2NN, while entry is by donation.

All profits will go to The Ringwood Waldorf School Development Fund and Surfers Against Sewage, which has been instrumental in making the screening happen.
