A TISBURY man is hoping to raise awareness of plastic waste through a thought-provoking film.

Edward Scott-Clarke has produced and directed Plastic Shores, looking at the impact of plastic waste on the marine environment. South Wiltshire Agenda 21, in partnership with Salisbury City Community Area Partnership (SCCAP), will be hosting a showing of the film at the Studio Theatre on January 24 as part of the Our Salisbury Community Plan.

Entry will be free but a collection to help fund a shorter version of the film suitable for use as an educational tool in secondary schools.

Mr Clarke, who was working as a green consultant for a government think tank when he decided to make this film, said: “The film has been popular so far, with a premier at the United Nations and screenings at the OECD, the European Commission and the US House of Congress. “As a resident of Wiltshire, I am trying to put Plastic Shores in local schools to raise awareness for this prolific problem.”

Mr Clarke would like to produce a 25-minute version of the film for schools, and is hoping this event will raise £2,000 towards that aim.

The doors open at 6.45pm and seats can be reserved by emailing southwiltsaction21@gmail.com or calling 01722 334209.
