PLASTIC PLANET

Plastic is the 20th Century's magical, miracle material. Plastic Planet highlights the progress of this artificial medium and how it imitates "Mother Nature.” From action figures to the credit card, plastic has flexibly, cheaply and colorfully impacted and improved nearly every aspect of life on Earth.

Plastic Planet examines the supply and demand development of plastic and its synthetic by-products of vinyl, polyester, Lycra, nylon, rayon and Teflon. You will be intrigued to see how plastic has revolutionized daily chores, seduced the retail industry, and ushered in a new age of music with compact discs. Narrated by Tom Baker, Plastic Planet explores the breadth of plastic's uses from injection molding technology to plastic surgery. Clearly, plastic is progress, power, and our future.
