Kicking the Plastic Addiction Video Promo

I’ve gone commercial!  Well, no I didn’t. But I did make a commercial. Okay, not exactly. Filmmaker Alec Bernal, who created last month’s Lunchbox Project video, just finished making me an awesome YouTube video promo for my book Plastic-Free. All I did was show up… and bring along the plastic sea monster.  Check out the transformation…

(Note: Because I had to reduce the dimensions of the video to fit on this blog, Youtube automatically reduces the default resolution, making some of the video look kind of pixelated. If you want to see and hear the better version, either click the little symbol at the bottom that looks like a gear and select 360p, or watch on Youtube directly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53h5MjiB3l4.)

Feel free to share this video and embed on your own website if you want to.

Happy Thursday!

Beth, My son and I saw the movie Bag it yesterday and it shook us to the core. We are angry and in complete disbelief about how far we've gone in being careless about our consumption. My heart is still pounding, so is my son's who is almost 18 years old.

 

I've been trying for years to use as little plastic as possible for health reasons (I suffered from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome years ago), mostly with things that had to do with food. But we still used plastic bags for groceries and would reuse to pick up our dogs' "mess". In the meanwhile having a ton of wonderful canvas bags in our utility closet and access to old newspapers for our doggy messes. We are taking this all the way... this year had already embarked on a journey to minimalism, and now NO MORE PLASTIC! No more! My husband is on board too!

 

If we had seen this documentary earlier, my son, who is about to become and Eagle Scout, would have done an awareness campaign for his required Eagle service. He does have a restoration project at a park in NYC, removing garbage - guess what? - plastic-everything from neglected park grounds. It's is terrible. While this great, it will get all trashed up again. The solution would have been to bring awareness about our plastic consumption. We're trying to find a way to incorporate this into his existing project.

 

Thank you for all that you are doing! Enjoy your blog a lot, but now I'm going to read it even more!

 

I'm considering writing up a blog to talk about our journey to minimalism and trying live plastic free, among many other things we'd like to do. It will also serve to hold us accountable each day to what we do!
