Nowadays, in my country, many people use less plastic bags; but, it has been dificult.

pollution definitely has a disastrous result in our human life. nowadays more and more people realized this problem and they had took some actions to protect the ecosystem environment. In china, there are so many films about this year there is a document fiction film about human disaster, wandering earth. I think it made a shocked impact on many people.

Dear admin ,
I pressed on the bar " reading text" but nothing appear , just a picture of a sea dog .

Hello lephuong
I'm sorry you're having trouble reading the article. I would recommend that you update your web browser or that you try a different web browser to see if you can read the text there. This page is working, but it could be that some older browsers don't display the text. If you're not able to do that, we plan to add a PDF to the page in the next few weeks and you could read that once it's available.
If you could tell me the operating system, web browser and browser version you are using, I'd be grateful so that we can look into a possible solution to this problem.
All the best

Related to the topic I would recommend the film Trashed with Jeremy Irons.

The last documentary I've seen is : blue. It makes you discover animals living in ocean as if you were part of this ecosystem and also sensitize to be aware about the protection of animals living in seas and oceans.

I had the same problem about the text, but I have fixed that using another browser. Anyway the topic was really interesting and I'll definitely watch the documentary on Netflix as soon as possible. There is too much plastic in the world, unnecessary most of the times. We separate waste to help recycle but it isn't enough, we have to reduce the source. Once we were used to keep and reuse over and over again our stuff, we have to remember that.
Anyway, I love documentaries because they let you find out new contents and make everything more impressive thanks to images. Usually I like historic documentaries.
