Media Theme- Movies And Documentaries About Ocean Pollution

Hello Ocean Heroes! As stated by the (very long) title, here is a list of some documentaries (And one movie, i'm pretty sure XD) about Ocean Pollution!

A World Full of Plastic

First of all, I couldn't find the actual picture of the documentary, so that's why there's an Earth with a plastic bag around it XD

Anyways, "A World Full Of Plastic" is a documentary series about plastic and how plastic gets into the ocean. The series looks at it from all different angles, and can be watched by adults and children!

A Plastic Ocean

"A Plastic Ocean" is a documentary about a four year journey taken by director Craig Leeson and former free diving world champion Tanya Streeter. The pair investigated how marine animals digest plastic, and how that plastic ends up on our plate, posing health risks that can be in the form of cancer. If you want to learn more about the health risks connected to plastic, for both animals and US, this is a good film to watch.

Bag It

"Bag It" investigates our use of plastic bags and other disposable plastic items. It draws attention to how dominant plastic has become in our lives, and it's both instructive and entertaining! I might see if I can watch it somehow because It looks really interesting!


The short film "Straws" tells the story of the straw, and dives into our overuse of disposable products. I did a jamboard post all about straws that you can find here:

Chasing Coral

"Chasing Coral" is a movie (I'm pretty sure) that follows the exciting and somewhat dangerous journey of marine researchers chasing the last remaining patches of coral. If you're interested in coral reefs (Which I haven't talked about much. Hmmm.... Ideas...) and want to see the effects of pollution on the reefs first hand, this film is perfect for you.

And that was all of my recommendations!

Do you know of any of these films? Have you watched any? Are you going to watch one or two? Which ones? Tell me down below in the comments!

P.S. I'm planning to do a book review on Flush, one of the books I recommended in THAT post! So, do you want to see a review on one of these documentaries or films if I watch one? If so, which one?
