Plastic Shopping Bag, the mockumentary

I love it when celebritities lend themselves to causes that aren’t necessarily glamorous. We stumbled upon a fantastically written and well produced mockumentary with the voice of Jeremy Iron - you may know him as the scary guy from Die Hard 3 who steals all the gold, or more recently, the robed gentleman in The Borgias.

This 4 minute short chronicles the migration of the humble plastic shopping bag through a city, struggling to make it’s way out to the ocean, it’s final resting place, the great pacific garbage patch. Made for Heal the Bay, it’s a clever reminder for all of us to remember to take reusable shopping bags to the supermarket with us, whether it’s a funky Envirosax or a drab cheap eco bag you buy from the supermarket or get given when you go shopping.
