A Plastic Ocean: A Screening & Discussion

April 26, 2018 – 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. 
SPC Seminole Campus Digitorium 
Join SPC Seminole for the movie, A Plastic Ocean followed by a discussion. 
In the center of the Pacific Ocean researchers found more plastic than plankton. “A Plastic Ocean” documents the newest science, proving how plastics, once they enter the oceans, break into small particulates that enter the food chain where they attract toxins like a magnet. These toxins are stored in seafood’s fatty tissues, and are eventually consumed by us.
*Space is limited up to 160 people and advance registration is required 
Before the discussion, come see us for a tour at The Courtney at Bay Pines! Offering one, two, and three bedroom apartment homes, our floor plans range from 590 square feet up to 1469 Sq ft!
