Ocean Connections


This year filmmakers considered the impact of human behavior on the world’s oceans. What actions do we take (or not take) each day that may affect ocean health, regardless of where we live? We make daily choices about our energy and water use, transportation, food, consumer products, and keeping our waterways clean.

Films from the 2013-2016 Ripple Effect Film Project  
  1. Energy Use
  2. Water Use
  3. Food Choices
  4. Product Choices
  5. Transportation Choices
  6. Clean Waterways

Energy Use


Using fossil fuel based energy to power our computers, provide light and heat, and air condition our homes and businesses impacts the ocean. Burning fossil fuels contributes to a warming climate, which raises ocean temperatures and sea levels, and contributes to the acidification of the ocean.

KEY ISSUE AND FILM TOPIC: How can a person, family, school, workplace, or community reduce their energy use?
