Canada has embraced the global #awaveofchange campaign following the successful launch of the Federally Incorporated Canadian Not for Profit branch of Plastic Oceans Foundation (POF Canada) alongside the premiere of A Plastic Ocean in Vancouver on 19th January. At POF Canada, we have been working to connect with all the organisations and individuals across Canada that participated in or have upcoming screenings of the film, across the country, from Vancouver through to Halifax and Quebec.

We have to do something, and do it now. We have produced more plastic in the last 10 years than we did in the whole of the last century. Plastic pollution has become a man-made global catastrophe. In a world of convenience living, we’re now so addicted to plastic that we’re drowning in it.
We are the Plastic Generation. This material is in all aspects of our daily lives. We use plastic because of its qualities – flexible, durable, in packaging protecting food and consumer products, as components in all our household goods and cars.
