I used to be oblivious to the amount of plastic in my life. In a bit of a convenient consumption coma you might say. Then one day, I had an epiphany and decided to give up plastics. I no longer wanted to be a part of the problem...every piece of plastic ever created still exists on this planet, and will for thousands of years. I am living plastic-free now, but feel like in the video, that a constant source is pointed at me and spewing the offending substance in my direction. Whilst tiresome, it is necessary for me to just keep on refusing every item. Otherwise, I would get buried in the stuff. To cease the endless flow, we need more people to rethink disposable plastics, and refuse.
