Plastic-Free Adventures with Dapper Dre: Trashy Dre
Flagstaff sends more than 1.4 million pounds of material to the recycling center each month, but about 1/3 of that cannot actually be recycled and goes to the landfill anyway, where it will remain forever. And even the stuff that can be recycled isn't easy to get rid of. It's expensive to sort and process, and then it must be sold on the market, where prices aren't always favorable. And the fact remains that most plastics and other materials that we discard cannot be recycled at all. A better solution is to REDUCE OUR USE. Flagstaff, let's tackle this problem where it starts--with us! Go here to learn more: plasticfreeflagstaff.org Produced and directed by Q Media.
The Last Straw- Director Paul Perreault, Producer Maria Campbell
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? Directed by Paul Perreault
