Plastic Tides is hosting a screening of its award winning film The Canal at BUEI. The Canal documents Christian Shaw and Gordon Middleton’s journey down the Erie Canal in New York in November of 2014 via standup paddleboard.
The two attempted to paddle from Ithaca, NY to Albany, 240 miles along the canal, during the polar vortex that sent temperatures below zero in every state in the US. They battle freezing rain, brutal cold, and hypothermia all to bring their message to the capital – to BAN plastic microbeads from the state.
The two established Plastic Tides in Bermuda and will kick off the evening with a slide-show of their 20 hour paddle around Bermuda in 2015. Proceeds from this showing will also go towards the SUP’r Kids Bermuda Program.
