Our Synthetic Sea & Synthetic Sea

Our Synthetic Sea traces the groundbreaking research conducted by the Algalita Marine Research Foundation (AMRF) regarding the exponential buildup of “non-biodegradable” plastic debris in the world’s ocean. The program documents AMRF research and sampling from Hawaii, the North Central Pacific Gyre, and the California Coastline. Our Synthetic Sea employs scientific papers and interviews with concerned scientists to reveal why toxic, estrogenic plastic debris is a serious, chronic threat to marine food webs. DVD also includes Synthetic Sea (Short Version), a documentary that explores a scientific investigation regarding the “explosive increase” of plastic debris in the world’s ocean. Synthetic Sea depicts how this plastic menace is negatively impacting sea life in increasingly alarming ways.
