This magnificent vid is stolen from Beth Terry's Fake Plastic Fish blog. Tim Minchin does a David Lee Roth production number about taking canvas bags to the supermarket. It starts slow for the first minute but builds. Jersey’s already there with the canvas bags but not everywhere is yet
Here is a strange “arty” 18 minute vid, narrated by Werner Herzog. The life and death – not – of a plastic bag. You’ll get bored but it’s worth sticking with for the punchline. The Vortex mentioned is a reference to the Pacific gyre - a huge area in the Pacific where plastic fragments just go round and round killing wildlife, which inspired Beth Terry's quest to live without plastic.
