This is a short, very powerful film about man's pollution of the world which deserves to be watched. It's shocking in parts, with graphic images, but please try to watch all of it.

I think this should be mandatory viewing at the cinema (captive audience) and given as wide a screening as possible. I hate pre-wrapped anything and always try to use my own bags, but this really does bring it home the truly awful impact of plastics . . .

The fact is that there are millions upon millions of sea-birds, and there is no way to know if the incidents they show in the video are common, or freak occurrences with millions to one odds.

i quite agree that plastics are overused, and it wont be long before we're mining the landfill for them: that's top of my list for when I win the lottery: buy an old quarry and set up a landfill in it... but sort it to make the mining easy.

There are a lot less of those millions of seabirds as a result of ingesting plastic rubbish , though...........see various RSPB reports, for a start....

and if we didn't buy it in the first place they wouldn't have died...
