It's not often that you watch something that makes you glad you won't be around in 100 years. This is one of those things. The scale of the trouble is unimaginably enormous and I've no concept how or when it will ever be solved. The movie taught me that we as a species HAVE to change our habits. We have to become more aware of what is event to our planet. Did you know that plastic trash is actually show in cute much each sample of seawater anywhere around the world? And it's not 'easy' items like soda bottles, it's been broken up over the decades and is actually microscopic in size (in addition to the large stuff) and that is then eaten by sea animals and eventually ends up back on our own plates! So not only is this plastic killing off millions of animals a year, decades down the line it's surely going to have a large impact on our own health with more incidences of cancer caused by the chemicals we'll be ingesting. Think you're OK because you don't eat fish? Think again! Lots of another things eat fish and we eat those another things too. These are the things this short movie taught me. Things I was marginally aware of but am actually far more knowledgeable of thanks to the clear and easy demonstrations and explanations shown here.The photography is both pretty and jarring with scenes of sea mammals and fish in their natural beauty then photos of beaches and rivers clogged with plastic trash.We are killing our planet. If you wish to be part of the solution, rather than the problem, watch this movie as a start.
Nice first 40 mins of movie present us beautifully that millions of variety of plastic enter the oceans each year, break into small pieces which carry poisons into the fish which eat them (virtually each species everywhere, since plastics outnumber plankton), and the poisons continue into chicken and vegetables grown with ground-up fish meal, and finally poisons are concentrated in us. The film also tells thousands of microscopic plastic fibers in clothing (acrylic, polyester) fall out into the water every time they're washed, so these fibers flow into oceans and meal chains. Then the film falls apart in the last 15 minutes. Of course we mustn't throw plastic in the oceans or hillsides, but the movie never speaks to most of us who dispose of plastic properly into lined landfills or recycling. How does that receive into the oceans? The film tells a couple of times that nothing can really be thrown away, because "there is no 'away'." I can trust there are problems, and I understand that landfills can erode and release plastic in future decades, but are they causing the actual crisis? Can they be designed better? If the trouble is that many regions don't have nice landfills, then we need to support make more nice landfills. If the trouble is that landfills don't work, we need to stop using plastic. The film also tells recycling is green-washing. Why? Is there any method to capture plastic clothing fibers, in filters or septic systems, or could we stop washing all plastic fibers?
Once again we have a one sided produced panic-mentary. Lots of movie time on things everyone knows are bad, pollution in an launch environment. Lot's of crying over spilt milk bottles. Graphic photos of wildlife ingesting plastic. Sailors and beach combers and activists interviewed and portrayed as "experts" in pollution making suppositions that may or may not be real - no difficult scientific evidence is presented - just opinion. Then we have a intelligent editing break to current "experts" that discuss pollution transfer in the meal chain. Yes this is a terrible thing - but how about a discussion on how to prevent, curtail, or offer solutions. Can we change the manufacturing process of plastic such that it DOES decompose in a short time - not discussed. Can we grow microbes that DO eat plastic - not discussed. Can huge corporations and shipping companies that deliberately pollute be prosecuted - not discussed.The spreading of the "message" is the solution! Huh? Nice luck with that. Receive back to me when you have some concrete solutions.
