Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

By Casey Chan on at

Plastic Paradise is a documentary by Angela Sun about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch at Midway Atoll. It shows how plastic is ruining nature, causing birds and animals to die and polluting the waters. It’s pretty bad.

The documentary analyses the change that inventing plastic has had on our lives and tries to answer the question of where the plastic we invent goes. 20 tonnes of plastic trash actually end up on the island of Midway Atoll, which is pretty much in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
