Bags in the Miscellaneous Media

A couple of items from out in "the internets" -

First from Chris Tola, Chair of Surfrider Australia, an animation - cute one, but not so cute in the end...see how many you can shoot and experience the subsequent consequences.

"As part of our Web Master’s student animation project for Surfrider Foundation Australia, Frank Gaschk made an interactive animation that focuses on the issue of plastic bags polluting the ocean. It's inspired by the Surfrider Europe image of plastic bags that look like jelly fish.

The animation can be viewed on Frank’s web site: here "


Secondly, an NPR audio story (!!) concerning plastic bags in India and the consequences of lazy legislation steered by bag producers - our worst opponent in this plastics battle.

Listen to the story here.
