Plastic pollution, even in the most remote reaches of the marine environment, will be the focus of a Wednesday, Oct. 1, event at RE Sources for Sustainable Communities.
The free program includes a presentation by Jo Ruxton, an underwater wildlife film producer who is part of a team making a documentary about the issue.
The event is 7 to 8 p.m. in the Sustainable Living Center, 2309 Meridian St. in Bellingham, on the second floor. Access is from the RE Store parking lot.
It will include a showing of the trailer for a film that is part of Plastic Oceans, an international campaign to reduce plastic pollution in the environment.
Never miss a local story.
RE Sources and the Whatcom County Marine Resources Committee are sponsoring the event.
Ruxton’s work has included productions such as Blue Planet, Saving Planet Earth and Pacific Abyss.
