Synopsis

This animated documentary short investigates the state of the plastics industry and gives a brief overview of the entire manufacturing process: extraction, transport, refining, production, distribution, consumption, and disposal. It highlights how businesses have turned to plastic production in more recent times, since the decline in gas and oil, with plans to build or expand over 300 petrochemical plants in the US alone by 2025. However, the documentary offers hope for systemic change, such as phasing out single-use plastics which pollute the most, resulting in a zero-waste future in which products are reused, repaired or effectively recycled. ‘The Story of Plastic’ provides a great introduction to environmentalism and sustainability.
