Irony abounds in this movie from Heal the Bay. Jeremy Irons’ calm, intriguing voice moves us through the story of a plastic bag on its journey to the sea and the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch”. The visuals are equally striking and oddly picturesque, capturing the perverse visual and environmental reality of our plastic use. “The Majestic Plastic Bag” is a excellent provocation and critique of habits and infrastructure.
Remember to Reduce (use less bags, bring your own), Reuse (Reuse you bags at the store, as trash liners or at the dog park) and Recycle (bring your plastic bags to a participating grocery store for recycling).
