This documentary examines our dependency on plastic - a substance so pervasive in our lives that it even touches our food in the form of bottles, containers, and plastic wrap.
But is it safe? Even the manufacturers don't know the list of secret ingredients. What is plastic really doing to us and the environment and how can we rid the planet of this plastic waste?
You may never look at plastic the same way again.
Watching this documentary has motivated me to do something about the problem. I'm going to assign this issue as a project to students in each of my classes.
This morning I woke up around 3 a.m. with the idea to start a website to help students more readily research environmental and social issues (not just plastic). If you can recommend some links I might use as resources, please share them.
