SEA PLASTIC POLLUTION

Passionate about ending plastic pollution Andy our Director of Photography decided to pull together an independent public awareness film.

Plastic rubbish in our seas and oceans has a horrific effect on our wildlife. In this 30 second commercial the horror is bought home.  A long filming day, at an amazing location in Bournemouth, even though this is a strong message everyone had heaps of fun filming.

Did you know over one million seabirds are killed by ocean pollution each year. Three hundred thousand dolphins and porpoises die each year as a result of becoming entangled in discarded fishing nets, among other items. One hundred thousand sea mammals are killed in the ocean by pollution each year.

Even though much the trash and waste dumped into the ocean is released hundreds of miles away from land, it still washes up on beaches and coastal areas, and affects everything in between. Every marine animal is affected by man-made chemicals released in the water.

There is an island of garbage twice the size of Texas inside the Pacific Ocean: the North Pacific Gyre off the coast of California is the largest oceanic garbage site in the entire world. There, the number of floating plastic pieces outnumbers total marine life six to one in the immediate vicinity.

We had a fun day filming and everyone threw themselves into it. Take a look at the behind the scenes pictures below.
