    I'll never think about plastic the same way, after watching "The Story of Plastic."  It's a powerful film taking you around the world to see how the environment is harmed when the raw material (oil) is extracted, when the plastic item is produced, and shipped, and used once, and thrown away - ending up in landfill or ocean or someone's neighborhood.

      Agree! I'm so glad we got that in our movie club. I am thinking about it constantly now and how individual consumers have very few choices... it's all about the industry and packaging!
