This 80 minute film examines the role of plastic in modern society, with a focus on the single use plastic bag.
The handout contains several pre-viewing questions and eleven questions about the content of the film. This documentary couples well with the SPRINGBOARD materials for English 10, the 11th Hour and other environmental topics.
The film could also be used with research topics: where does your trash go, how long do items take to degrade / decompose, how much trash does our school generate each day, etc. The film's website offers examples of student-led community projects.
This is a doc, so it is easily editable.
(The film contains images of childbirth in the final few minutes.)
