Beach communities around the world suffer from an abundance of plastic that tragically ends up in the oceans at an alarming rate – over 8 million metric tons per year. Join the founders of the Azulita Project, as they share information on how a small community is making a difference.

The Last Straw

By Paul Perreault and students from Pine Forest Charter School in Flagstaff, AZ

Our oceans are in trouble. Plastic pollution is greater than ever and Earthlings are slow to change their ways.  A recent report suggesting there may be more plastic than fish in our oceans by the year 2050 has generated much discussion among the scientific community;  Is this truly possible? Can we project to 2050?

In this animation, we follow one brave extra-terrestrial in his crusade to save Earth. By using this shock narrative, he takes us on a journey through time; from the past, to the present and to a possible 2050 to illustrate what the world's oceans might look like if behavior remains unchanged. For the alien, this is 'The Last Straw.' Will he succeed in encouraging Earthlings to change their ways?
