The Story Of Plastic
We only know the end of the story... and that's just the beginning.
Trailer (Audio:: English, no subtitles)
"The Story Of Plastic" takes a sweeping look at the man-made crisis of plastic pollution and the worldwide effect it has on the health of our planet and the people who inhabit it.
Spanning three continents, the film illustrates the ongoing catastrophe: fields full of garbage, veritable mountains of trash, rivers and seas clogged with waste, and skies choked with the poisonous emissions from plastic production and processing.
The film features interviews with experts and activists on the front lines of the fight, revealing the disastrous consequences of the flood of plastic smothering ecosystems and poisoning communities around the world, and the global movement that is rising up in response. With engaging original animation, archival industry footage beginning in the 1930s, and first-person accounts of the unfolding emergency, the film distills a complex problem that is increasingly affecting the planet’s and its residents’ well-being.

Fortunately, the film does offer some hope in the faces and words of its interview subjects, who remind us that there are good people out there working to create some possible solutions. And, as with all fine activist documentaries, it ends with a call to action on what we can do. First and foremost, however, we can at least try to stop using plastic in our own lives. – Hammer to Nail
"The Story of Plastic" is an eye-opener on the global plastic pollution crisis. – Greenpeace
