The Story of Plastic uncovers the truth behind plastic pollution and the false solution of plastic recycling. The film presents a cohesive timeline of how the current global plastic pollution crisis came to be and how the oil and gas industry has successfully manipulated the narrative around it. Traversing the globe, audiences are introduced to the opposing forces behind one of the world’s most pressing environmental issues; from the extraction of fossil fuels to plastic disposal, and the global resistance taking action.
