      The Ikkatsu Project

      The Ikkatsu Project

      Ikkatsu is a Japanese term that means “united as one,” a concept that is illustrated perfectly by our oceans and the fact that, rather than separate us, they serve to bring us all together. From our home waters in the Pacific Northwest, the Ikkatsu Project is working to raise awareness about the many issues facing today’s global marine environment.

      Watch - "Decision" is the story of wild Alaska shorelines, a remote lighthouse and the ongoing problem of marine debris. The scenery is magnificent and the kayaking is superb, while the message about our addiction to plastic and its effects on the environment come through in every shot. This short film can transport you to pristine southeast Alaska waters, bringing you along on a paddling journey with whales, sea lions and otter, and still show you the realities of wilderness beaches choked with plastic debris and the volunteers working to clean them up.
