Director Heather Gustafson Florida
One of the easiest ways to help the planet is by giving up every single piece of disposable plastic in your life. And it's the only way to battle the growing plastic pollution problem churning away in our oceans right now. TRASHY is a feature-length documentary following the film's director over the course of a year as she gives up trash for 365 days. It's not always easy, and sometimes it's actually funny to watch her struggle her way through a year of zero-waste. Hopefully, the film inspires others to make small changes in their daily lives and work towards a less trashy future. And if nothing else, you'll laugh watching her struggle to set up a worm compost in her one-bedroom apartment.
Please Don't Feed the Pelicans
Director Dee Fairbanks Simpson
Many people toss their fish carcasses to Pelicans and other wild birds, thinking that they are giving the bird a “treat” and that it’s better than disposing of the carcass in the trash. Unfortunately, this hurts and can even kill birds, especially Pelicans. This short film, produced for Tampa Audubon, describes the harm caused by feeding pelicans and suggests alternative ways to connect with pelicans that will not harm the birds
