Drowning in plastic...Enough plastic is-2 (640x640)

Disposable plastics changed our lives, adding convenience as well as toxins to our daily routine.

Single-use items are often unnecessary, costly and can be extremely damaging to the environment and its creatures.

Admittedly, this video trailer (from the film Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch) is disturbing. Yet it’s a must-watch. But first, here’s a brief synopsis from the film’s website plasticparadisemovie.com.

Thousands of miles away from civilization, Midway Atoll is in one of the most remote places on earth. And yet it has become ground zero for The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, syphoning plastics from three distant continents.
  
In this independent documentary film, journalist/filmmaker Angela Sun travels on a personal journey of discovery to uncover this mysterious phenomenon. Along the way she meets scientists, researchers, influencers, and volunteers who shed light on the effects of our rabid plastic consumption and learns the problem is more insidious than we could have ever imagined.
