To help bring awareness to the amount of plastic waste in South Carolina waterways, Emma DeLoughry spent her graduate school career making a documentary.

“A film is not traditional for a project like this; however, I wanted to do something where I could affect a behavioral change,” she said.

DeLoughry took media arts classes in addition to her Master of Earth and Environment Resource Management degree.

The documentary aired on ETV in December.
