Summary
They take hundreds of years to biodegrade and have sparked heated debate around the world. This documentary examines the controversy over plastic bags, from their often devastating environmental impact to their remarkable ubiquity in consumer culture. Outlining the bag's connection to Big Oil, the film presents environmental case studies in Mumbai, where clogged flood drains have sparked plastic bag bans, and Hawaii, where plastic beach litter has killed wildlife on a staggering scale. Also profiled is a retired German schoolteacher who has amassed the world's largest plastic bag collection-and, for mysterious reasons, keeps it locked in a bomb shelter
