GCA, Land Trust of Virginia and Virginia League of Conservation Voters Education Fund hosted the environmental movie screening Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch on Friday, March 6 at The Hill School in Middleburg. In spite of freezing temperatures and snow covered roads from a storm the night before we had a great crowd show up and enjoy the movie. The movie is a serious look at plastic in our lives and what it’s doing to our health and our ecosystems. The Pacific Ocean along with earth’s other great bodies of water are being transformed into garbage recepticals. Action needs to be taken now to curb this environmental disaster from getting worse. We can all help by: Using multi use bags for all shopping, adopting a non-1-use plastic container policy, urging legislators to adopt a no plastic bag policy and telling friends and neighbors about the importance of reducing plastic usage.
