“What happens with plastic when we throw it away?” This short film by a young filmmaker named Dylan D’Haeze explores the history of plastic and takes the viewer on an historical journey about its invention and many uses. The film also illustrates many of the damaging effects of plastic trash on our living environment, especially our oceans around the globe. What happens when we throw this lightweight and innovative invention into our thriving ecosystems? Dylan, the viewer’s narrator, shows how many young people like himself, along with many concerned adults and agencies, are trying to make a difference in cleaning up their specific areas around the world from plastic trash. The three R’s, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle are introduced and explored. This a short but engaging film on one our planet’s controversial issues regarding wastes.
