The plastic bag's migration route is threatened by the Teacup Yorkie; click to see the videoThis video "mockumentary", starring a plastic bag and the voice of Jeremy Irons, really should be seen.  Plastic as a whole involves toxicity from start to finish, and its chemical components have penetrated every part of the planet, including our human bodies.  The chemical industry is one of the prime suspects in the great rise of autoimmune disease in recent years.  The humor and clever parody of the BBC "Earth" series, makes the topic quite a bit more enjoyable to watch, despite the serious underlying message.

Yes, it is. Thank you on behalf of its producers!

If you have seen BBC Earth, which really is a terrific production about life on the planet, you realize how well this "Majestic Plastic Bag" video recreated, with a mockumentary slant, the narrative voice, the wording, and the musical accompaniment of the BBC series.

About contributor Member: PT (David Alexander) PT (David Alexander)
   Web site:

Member: PT (David Alexander) In 2006 I started building the Web site to raise awareness of environmental issues, but I have been in the software field since 1978, working primarily on healthcare-related and not-for-profit organizations, but also for some general commercial companies. I have also long been a supporter of environmental causes.

I am an enthusiastic Tai Chi Chuan practitioner and teacher. This helps balance my brain after sitting at a screen for hours at a time, and lends some balance to life.

In early 2006 global warming and other environmental and energy challenges, as well as escalating wars in numerous locations, became central to my understanding of issues that our whole planet faces, and I wanted to do something with my skills to spread awareness and understanding of environment and energy issues, as well as discuss better philosophies of living, for greater satisfaction beyond consumerism.
