Pinewood rethinks plastic hosting a screening of A Plastic Ocean

Pinewood were pleased to host a special screening of A Plastic Ocean last night, followed by an insightful Q&A with producer Jo Ruxton and Amy & Ella Meek from Kids Against Plastic.

A Plastic Ocean is a feature-length adventure documentary that brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle. It has been described by Sir David Attenborough as “one of the most important films of our time” and explores the alarming damage that plastic is causing our oceans.

Guests were welcomed by a fantastic installation of 240 water bottles in water, the average number of water bottles used per day on a film production.

The screening was organised and supported by Ora Water Location Specialists and London Diving Chamber, with supporting partners Diving Services UK, Kids Against Plastic and CanO Water; two organisations that are working to fight the world's plastic crisis.

A commitment to sustainability is high on Pinewood’s agenda and the group is proud of its green credentials. From eco travel and energy, to recycling, Pinewood also encourages its partners, productions and businesses based at the Studios to adopt a greener lifestyle.
