Eating Up Easter - Official Trailer

Plastic Oceans International is proud to be a partner in the new documentary film, Eating Up Easter. This production from director, Sergio Mata'u Rapu, Kartemquin Films, and Pacific Islanders in Communications, is a powerful story that addresses such topics as plastic pollution, how population and tourism growth is impacting waste management on the island, and the loss of cultural identity at the hands of globalization. By looking at these issues on the micro level of Rapa Nui, we come away with lessons valid for the entire globe.
