Overview

The global plastic crisis is often turned into a blame game, with the fault typically cast on the consumer, for buying it in the first place. In The Story of Plastic, an alternate perspective of accountability is offered — with responsibility placed in the hands of the corporations who are promoting and profiting from the word’s escalating use of plastics, a cycle that originates with the extraction of fossil fuels and culminates in the widespread pollution of our air, water and bodies. With compelling stories told from around the globe, the film exposes the root of this epidemic and the web of greed that perpetuates it.
