Plastics…a reality check

I watch a lot of videos relating to animal welfare and environmental issues these days and sometimes feel like I’ve become a little desensitised, however when I viewed this incredible video via the treehugger website, the footage had a profound effect on me and I wanted to share it with you here. This short film documents one of the remotest spots on the planet, the Midway Atoll, situated around 1,800 kms from Honolulu, Hawaii and the massive impact washed up plastics are having on birds and marine life – it has to be seen to be believed.
