Watch this: Plastic pollution: How humans are turning the world into plastic

Still from Kurzgesagt Plastic Pollution video

Remember old King Midas? Like his ability to turn everything he touched into gold, we humans are turning everything into plastic. And like Midas, it's not always a good thing.

This fantastic video from Kurzgesagt's In a Nutshell animated film series explains the impact plastic is having on the planet and on us.

Thanks to sustainable lifestyle guru Jen Gale for sharing this video on her A Sustainable Life Facebook page, where she says, 'It's nine minutes long but easily digestible and would be a great one to watch with kids'. Agreed.
