Watch the Long Journey of the Plastic Bag (VIDEO)

You’ve probably seen a number of the magnificent BBC wildlife videos. But here’s one you may have missed. Narrated by Jeremy Irons, this video depicts the long journey of a plastic bag — from a grocery store parking lot to its home in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

Watch the video, then take action: Say NO more plastic bag pollution!

Thanks for the video. I loved it. More people need to see this and everyone needs to stop using plastic and if you do... then recycle it.

Such a delightful & funny video. By funny I mean it was like a cartoon, although it carried a serious message. Ban plastic bags worldwide!!

One is too many, but is there a similar garbage patch of plastic bags in the Atlantic Ocean?
