In an effort to raise awareness about the serious issue of Plastic Pollution (and in particular Single-Use Plastic Bags), we have partnered with GA Tech’s Think Green Team and the folks from the GA Tech Surf Club to bring you this award winning documentary which explores how much each of us currently depend on plastic.
The Story of Bottled Water, released on March 22, 2010 (World Water Day) employs the Story of Stuff style to tell the story of manufactured demand—how you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows from the tap.
THE NIGHTMARE of human pollution was exposed for all to see today when Phuket veterinarians cut open a giant leatherback turtle in a post mortem.
Inside the stomach, the cause of the wonderful creature’s death became apparent. Six plastic bags obstructed the 15-year-old turtle’s digestive system, preventing food from being absorbed.
Cetaceans and other marine life regularly mistake plastic bags for jellyfish as the ocean current sometimes forces bags to open and close, mimicking the way a jellyfish swims, whales like Temata will immediately swallow them. Sadly, it’s too late for this whale but hopefully other whales around the Cook Islands will be saved from such an horrendous death – pollution kills.
