Addicted To Plastic details plastic's path over the last 100 years and includes expert interviews on practical and cutting edge solutions to recycling, toxicity and biodegradability. These solutions provide a hopeful perspective about our future with plastic. PRODUCTION DETAILS: Director/Producer: Ian Connacher. A Cryptic Moth Production.
