A Monument To Our Love Of Petrochemicals – The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

If you’re not convinced yet that it’s time to stop using so-called “disposable” plastic bags or buying water in plastic bottles, you need to watch this brilliant mockumentary, The Majestic Plastic Bag. It’s hard to believe that we humans have created a garbage patch twice the size of Texas in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, yet we have. Sort of like it’s hard to believe that all that carbon dioxide we’ve burned up in the pursuit of our industrialized way of life this last century is poised to destroy the world as we know it. Yet it is.


Thanks to Perry and Suzanne for bringing this video to my attention.
