Trash Talk

Plastic bottles don't pollute the environment; people pollute the environment. So it makes perfect sense to us that a cute little plastic bottle named Sam is the heroine of Space 55's Of Plastic Things and Butterfly Wings, a show for kids and families that includes musical instruments and puppets made from recycled materials. Sam's lost her parents in the ocean's swirling vortex of trash, and on her journey to find them, aided by creatures she meets along the way, she helps save us all.
