As Earthkeepers, We Have a Duty to this Planet
Midway Island is a tiny island way out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, a nature preserve. It is in the Pacific Trash Vortex. As Earthkeepers, we have a duty to this planet, Pachamama. Every plastic bottle, every plastic bag, every plastic lighter that we use to light our sacred fires, goes somewhere. In this case, into the beaks of birds.
Make your actions count. Bring your own mugs, cloth bags, use less. Get out into nature and be thankful for what our Pachamama provides.
"The MIDWAY film project is a powerful visual journey into the heart of an astonishingly symbolic environmental tragedy. On one of the remotest islands on our planet, tens of thousands of baby albatrosses lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic from the Pacific Garbage Patch. Returning to the island over several years, our team is witnessing the cycles of life and death of these birds as a multi-layered metaphor for our times. With photographer Chris Jordan as our guide, we walk through the fire of horror and grief, facing the immensity of this tragedy—and our own complicity—head on. And in this process, we find an unexpected route to a transformational experience of beauty, acceptance, and understanding."
