PLASTIC is a shocking and global journey to investigate what we really know about the material of a thousand uses and why there's so darn much of it. On the way we discover a worldwide waste and toxic legacy, but also we meet the men and women dedicated to cleaning it up. PLASTIC is a documentary about solutions to plastic pollution and encompasses three years of filming in 12 countries on 5 continents, including two trips to the middle of the Pacific Ocean where plastic debris accumulates. The film details plastic's path over the last 100 years and provides a wealth of expert interviews on practical and cutting edge solutions to recycling, toxicity and biodegradability. These solutions will provide viewers with a hopeful perspective about our future with plastic.
