United Nations - Plastic - both a wonderful invention and a scourge on our planet. Over 300 million tons will be produced this year. Most is never recycled and remains on our land and in our seas for ever. Our story shows the damage to all creatures who depend on the ocean for their food – from birds… to us. 21st Century: Episode #126 This is an adaptation from the original documentary “A Plastic Ocean” by the Plastic Oceans Foundation.
