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: http://www.insightandenergy.com

Member: PT (David Alexander) My lifelong pursuit, since age 18, has been to live more fully and find wisdom. This has involved studies with Zen masters, Tai Chi masters, and great psychotherapists while achieving my license as a gestalt therapist and psychoanalyst.

Along the way, I became aware of how the planet is under great stress due to the driven nature of human activity on this planet.

I believe that the advancement of human well-being will reduce societies addictive behaviors, and will thus also help preserve the environment and perhaps slow down the effects of global warming and other major threats to the health of human societies.
