We live in a spotless, clean environment. The waste that we produce each day quickly disappears from our eyesight. But once the waste disappears from our eyesight, where does it go? Is it recycled properly as we imagine?

PLASTIC CHINA is a story about how plastic waste from all around the world, including the United States , ends up in China . It is because of this plastic waste that water is no longer clean, air is no longer fresh, and food is no longer safe in many areas in China . People living in these polluted areas experience elevated rates of disease and mortality. This film reveals the shocking degree to which we all play a part in this problem. Nowadays, the connections among people around the world is ever closer, and China is in fact not that far from home.
