Brilliant mockumentary – made me laugh… and cry.
Do watch this if you have ever used a plastic bag.
I was researching turtles this morning and came across this ‘mockumentary’ – a spoof documentary of a plastic bag and its lifecycle, filmed as if it’s sentient.
Plastic is building up and breaking down into minute pieces in the sea, the chemicals consumed by creatures that eat plankton, that are then eaten by bigger creatures, and then fish, that we then eat…
Plastic is also breaking down into minute pieces in the air, which we are all breathing in.
We have kept string bags in the boot of the car for about 5 years now. They hold more than plastic bags, and they don’t slip around in the back, spilling their contents. I thought it would be a pain remembering them, but now it’s an automatic thing we do – park, get out, get the bags, lock the car, go shopping.
Easy to save a turtle, or a dolphin, or seabird – and ourselves.
