Plasticized Paradise

VAT2019 N 169
SynopsisPlastics have transformed every aspect of our lives. Yet the very properties that make them attractive—they are cheap to make, light, and durable—spell disaster when trash makes its way into the environment. Plastic pollution is one of the most damaging environmental issues that we face today. How do we solve this problem now and for the future? According to some estimates, if we continue on our current path, the oceans will contain more plastic than fish by the year 2050. This film showcases how plastic waste can be used to make bricks that can help in the construction of rigid structures.
