Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch
The journalist and filmmaker Angela Sun have documented her trip to Midway Atoll in the North Pacific. It is a place that is thousands of miles away from the nearest civilization and is called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Garbage from three continents is collected in a subtropical wind and is transferred to the Midway Atoll. It's a horrible view of high mountains of plastic and garbage from people’s enormous plastic consumption. On her journey, Angela Sun meets scientists, opinion makers and volunteers who show what this does to the oceans, nature and even the human health.
