After months of planning and co-ordination, our team is moments away from their trip to the gyre. Filmmaker Steve Lawrence and crew have boarded the Billabong seaplane and will soon depart to the heart of the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch,” where they will rendezvous with Captain Charles Moore on the research vessel Alguita. In addition to Steve and the GreenLandOceanBlue crew, a small, international consortium of concerned individuals will be departing from Oahu, Hawaii for the 4-5 hour flight. They will spend the day documenting the debris and interviewing the Alguita researchers in order to better understand the devastating effect of plastic pollution on the world’s oceans. Upon their return, the first Plastic Pacific film project will begin production!
