ABOUT the film: 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. 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.

CO-HOSTED by 1% for the Planet, Health and Environmental Funders Network (HEFN), Rachel’s Network, and The Story of Stuff Project, with gratitude to Forsythia Foundation for support in producing this program.
