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.

It's an eye-opening piece that'll up your consciousness when it comes to wrapping the world in plastic.
