As Austrian filmmaker Werner Boote traveled
the world to make Plastic Planet,
he asked people to show off just how many plastic items were in their homes.
Modest-sized dwellings in Japan, Austria and the U.S. yielded huge caches of
the stuff. So did a small shanty in India. Turns out it really is a plastic
planet, even though products made of synthetic polymers have been commercially
marketed for only about 100 years. (Bakelite dates to 1907.) Plastic blows in
the wind, bobs in the ocean and — perhaps most alarmingly — percolates through
the human reproductive system.—NPR Review
