The Majestic Plastic Bag

The Majestic Plastic Bag from Heal the Bay on Vimeo.

Heal the Bay, a nonprofit environmental organization working to improve watersheds and coastal areas of Southern California, made this short film that tracks the ‘migration’ of a plastic bag from the grocery store to the ocean. The film is narrated by Jeremy Irons, and was featured as a Long Short in our series of short films that convey long-term thinking. It was screened at our May 02012 SALT seminar with Susan Freinkel, Eternal Plastic: A Toxic Love Story.
