Eat Less Plastic

On May 14th 2018, our crew boarded the 54ft. sailboat “TODAY” to cross the Pacific Ocean in order to collect insights on the Oceans rapidly declining health.  For 6 months teams of people just like you including leaders, champion sailors, actors, and directors, and artists monitored and documented plastic waste known as microplastics.

The information and data collected in the undocumented areas will be sent to The 5 Gyres Trawl Share Program  to help with the  Global Estimate of Marine Plastic Pollution.  Our hope is that this voyage will not only bring public awareness, but legislative change to change the way our culture uses plastic. 

The entire journey will be filmed using state of the art VR/360 technology to give students, non profits, and global organizations an opportunity to see whats going on out in the Pacific First Hand. 

Bringing awareness to single use plastic pollution in our ocean and food chain is an important goal. 

Plastic is killing our ecosystem and poisoning our food chain. This valuable data will be used to help facilitate positive change through film, education, and rewrite legislation to combat this global threat. We plan to take action and so should you! Collectively, we can and will force a change to defeat the threat we’ve created in order to help our generation and the next.

About The Film:

With exclusive support from pioneers in the VR field using drones, underwater 360, microscopical video, photography and ultra HD video, viewers will take the front seat on a life-changing journey to some of the most remote and devastated parts of the world. 360 Video and later interactive VR will showcase immersive footage to experience first hand how our current culture has caused the largest environmental and human disaster known to man: plastic. Footage so immersive that viewers will be able to feel the devastating impacts plastic is having on civilizations across the ocean and more importantly act on it and help change the way we use and consume it.

During the journey, crew members will be using a mantra trawl to collect plastic particles for parts of the ocean that have never been gathered before. The new and unknown data will be sent to researchers to analyze and quantify the impacts plastic is having on our ocean, marine life as well as our ecosystem. This critical data will be used to force legislative changes and create education in order to have a positive impact on our future.
