A Life in Plastic
A Life in Plastic (Working Title) is a story about plastic. It’s about how plastic has become an integral part of our culture and life. But it’s also a film about the impact it is having on our world. In little more than a century, plastic has gone from being hailed as a scientific wonder to being reviled as an environmental scourge. The production of plastic has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. A Life in Plastic is a documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our love of plastic.
Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest design studios to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world’s leading experts, the film is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people for whom plastic is a big part of their lives—either for good or bad reasons.
The film not only presents expert’s suggestions on how to turn a sad development, it also tells stories of passionate and innovative people working on a solution as well as it presents famous brands carrying out corporate social innovations that might be great contributions to solving our plastic problem.
