This short film titled The Majestic Plastic Bag is funny in a sad, ironic way. The huge garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean that contains countless plastic bags (and a lot of other plastic debris) is about to grow by one bag. Watch it on its journey as Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons gives it the nature documentary treatment.

The film was created to help support California Bill AB1998, a bill that would ban plastic bags from grocery stores and other large stores throughout the state. If you’re a California resident, you can contact your state representative and voice your support of the bill.
