Basically, this movie will let you dive into the plastic world we have created and how it is destroying it at the same time.
1 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie drastically changed my life. I was already a reusable bag-user, but it altered my perception on all of the other plastic things in our lives.

It was shocking how much of the side effects/destruction plastic is doing we don't all know, and that's what really inspired me to make a change.

Plastic is SO detrimental, I wish it just wasn't even invented.

I recommend this film to all viewers.

It's not just some hippie documentary, but for all people of all races, classes, age, sex, etc.
