The Life of the Humble Plastic Bag


California is consider passing a ban on plastic bags. Heal the Bay, a non-profit organization dedicated to cleaning, protecting and maintaining Santa Monica Bay and its ecosystems, wants to make sure that ban happens. So it’s put together a short documentary on the life cycle of the humble plastic bag, following it from “birth” at the grocery store to its home in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, where it goes on to degrade and eventually enter our food chain.

The video is narrated by Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons, and it’s an entertaining bit of satire. Viewers seem to agree – the video, though a touch on the longer side of internet attention spans at nearly 4 minutes, has gained over 50 thousand views in just four short days. We won’t be surprised to see this one gathering viewers exponentially, either.
