Plastic Planet

A couple of nights ago we watched Plastic Planet. We know we are surrounded by plastic but do we know the effects? We learned that plastic is in our blood streams and that it is causing infertility. We learned yet again about how it is hurting wildlife ie birds feeding bits of plastic to their babies and about them dying from it.  We learned about how it is having an effect on the ratio of girls to boys which I did know before and can witness right before my eyes. Plastic is everywhere and part of everything. In the show they told people to take out all the plastic stuff they have outside to see how much they have. People were surprised at how much they had even in 3rd world countries. This documentary is very eye-opening. Sit down with your family and be educated and informed. Great for discussions afterwards.
