Break Free from Plastic
30 July 2020 | by TigerHeronSee all my reviews

This is an excellent documentary that exposes the business behind single use plastic. Most people don't think about how plastic is made from fossil fuels and that each time we buy something made of plastic we're supporting the fossil fuel industry. Nor do most people probably realize that much of the plastic they use is not recyclable, nor that burning it gives off toxic fumes and contributes to climate change. Most people don't realize that we've been sending our plastic waste to the Third World, where poor people are exposed to the toxic waste created by plastics. There are some really shocking scenes and anecdotes in this film. Stop buying single use plastic, especially snack wrappers that cannot be recycled.
