Smog of the Sea Film Screening and Panel Discussion at the Abraham Hostel in Jerusalem

Zero Waste Jerusalem was excited to be a part of a truly insightful and informative (English) panel on the current situation of plastic and waste in Jerusalem, and Israel as a whole. December 13th, 2018. The panel was organized by the Abraham Hostel Jerusalem and Plastic Free Israel and took place on December 13, 2018

The amazing panel included our own Shalom Or from Jerusalem Green Fund קרן ירושלים ירוקה and Zero Waste Jerusalem, Stav Freed from Plastic Free Israel, Inon Dan Kehati from البيت הבית The Home, Omri Hazor from Surf Film Nights, and organizer/moderator Therez Hill.

Highly recommend watching.

*We would also definitely recommend watching/hosting a screening of Smog of the Sea.

” The Smog of the Sea chronicles a 1-week journey through the remote waters of the Sargasso Sea. After years of hearing about the famous “garbage patches” in the ocean’s gyres, the crew is stunned to learn that the patches are a myth: the waters stretching to the horizon are clear blue, with no islands of trash in sight. But as the crew sieves the water and sorts through their haul, a more disturbing reality sets in: a fog of microplastics permeates the world’s oceans, trillions of nearly invisible plastic shards making their way up the marine food chain. You can clean up a garbage patch, but how do you stop a fog? ”
