Ken Campbell kayaked 150 miles from one end of the Puget Sound in northwestern US to another, in a boat made of discarded plastic bottles to raise awareness about issues related to single-use plastics and the health of the ocean. Along his journey, Campbell participated in beach clean-up efforts organized by local environmental groups and also gave presentations on issues that are troubling the world’s oceans. This documentary emphasizes how bottles, plastic fragments, shopping bags, and food wrappers are the new seashells, and how they impact marine ecology and sea levels.
