We are delighted to share with you more details about the screening of A Plastic Ocean that took place on December 7th at the Europe Direct Office of Komotini, in northern Greece. Sofia Papadopoulou reached out to us to organise the event. After the screening she led the audience in a discussion of what they each could do to reduce plastic pollution. Ms Papadopoulou brought a multi-use tote, a reusable bottle and a stainless steel straw to show some simple solutions for a less wasteful lifestyle. She was surprised to see that many in the audience were not aware of how widespread the plastic pollution problem is.
It is of paramount importance to educate people about the harm of plastic pollution. Very few people would knowingly, or purposefully, throw away their garbage irresponsibly if they were fully aware of the consequences. Let's continue to spread the word. It would be amazing for mainstream TV in Greece to air such documentaries such as "A Plastic Ocean" to educate people of all ages.
THANK YOU for your efforts Ms Papadopoulou!
