Addicted To Plastic

Industrial plant from a distance. Caption: That's the world's largest PLA manufacturing plant.

From Styrofoam cups to artificial organs, plastics are perhaps the most ubiquitous and versatile material ever invented. No invention in the past 100 years has had more influence and presence than synthetics. But such progress has had a cost. Investigates what we really know about the material of a thousand uses and why there's so much of it. On the way we discover a toxic legacy, and the men and women dedicated to cleaning it up. NOTE: Contains a brief nude scene.
