Synthetic Sizer

Drop the Solo cup and put down the Gladware container of Cheerios you're using as a bowl. Now take a second and try to spot all the plastic around you. Pretty crazy quantities, huh? Well, that's exactly what inspired documentarian Ian Connacher's three-year trip to 12 countries on five continents. During that time he looked into and filmed how the synthetic material is accumulating worldwide. The result? Addicted to Plastic. It's an eye-opening piece that'll up your consciousness when it comes to wrapping the world in plastic.
