I WANTED TO CREATE SOMETHING THAT WILL BEST UTILISE THE WORD 'EVENTS' WITHIN THE ORGANISATION'S NAME. WHAT BETTER WAY TO DO IT THAT TO HOLD 4 EVENTS SHOWING MOVIES THAT FUNDAMENTALLY SHOW AND DISCUSS THE CURRENT STATE OF THE PLASTIC POLLUTION ON EARTH'S LAND AND SEA. 

PLASTIC POLLUTION INVOLES THE ACCUMULATION OF PLASTIC PRODUCTS IN THE ENVIRONMENT THAT ADVERSLY AFFECTS WILDLIFE, WILDLIFE HABITATS AND HUMANS. PLASTICS THAT ACT AS POLLUTANTS ARE CATERGORISED INTO MICRO, MESO, OR MACRO DEBRIS, BASED ON SIZE. THE PROMINENCE OF PLSASTIC POLLUTION IS CORRECTED WITH PLASTICS BEING INEXPENSIVE AND DURABLE WHICH LENDS TO HIGH LEVELS OF PLASTICS USED BY HUMANS. HOWEVER, IT IS EXTREMELEY SLOW TO DEGRADE.

PLASTIC POLLUTION CAN UNFAVOURABLY AFFEST LANDS, WATERWAYS AND OCEANS. LIVING ORGANISMS, PARTICULARY MARINE ANIMALS, CAN ALSO BE AFFECTED THROUGH ENTANGLEMENT, DIRECT INGESTION OF PLASTIC WASTE, OR THROUGH EXPOSURE TO CHEMICALS WITHIN PLASTICS THAT CAUSE INTERRUPTION IN BIOLOGICAL FUNCTIONS. HUMANS ARE ALSO AFFECTED BY PLASTIC POLLUTION, SUCH AS THROUGH THE DISRUPTION OF THE THYROID HORMONE AXIS OR HORMONE LEVELS. IN THE UK ALONE, MORE THAN 5 MILLION TONNES OF PLASTIC ARE CONSUMED EACH YEAR, OF WHICH AN ESTIMATED MERE 24% MAKE IT INTO RECYCLING SYSTEMS. THAT LEAVES A REMAINING 3.8 MILLION TONNES OF WASTE TO BE DESTINED FOR LANDFILLS.PLASTIC REDUCTION EFFORTS HAVE OCCURED IN SOME AREAS IN ATTEMPTS TO REDUCE PLASTIC CONSUMPTION AND POLLUTION AND PROMOTE PLASTIC RECYCLING, ALTHOUGH ALL THE PLASTIC THAT LEAVES OUR SHORES GOES TOWARD OUR OVERALL RECYCLING TARGETS HERE IN THE UK, EVEN IF IT DOESN'T END UP GETTING RECYCLED.

MOVIE NIGHTS WILL BE LIMITED TO THE LOCATION/VENUES THEY WILL BE HELD AT. KICK STARTING OUR SCREENINGS WITH THE ACCLAIMED DOUBLE BILL SHOWINGS OF 'BAYKEEPERS' & 'PLASTICIZED' BY FILM MAKER AND SURFER, MICHAEL J.LUTMAN ON OUR FIRST NIGHT. ALSO WE'RE HOPING FOR A 2ND NIGHT OF THIS MOVIE.

MOVIE NIGHT ENTRY WILL INCLUDE TICKETS AND REFRESMENTS WILL ALL PROCEEDS GOING TO 'SURFERS AGAINST SEWAGE' AND THE SURFHOUSE, ST IVES.

ONLY IN THE WAVES OF CHANGE WILL YOU FIND YOUR TRUE DIRECTION - unknown
