My all-time favourite documentary is "Our Planet". Not only did I find this documentary super helpful, but I also came to the realization that we, humans, are badly damaging our planet. Besides this all, what I love about this documentary is the accent of the narrator. So, if you are looking for a documentary about how we, humans, are changing the nature and the species in it, I highly recommend "Our Planet" documentary.

Hi! I want to share a short story about my father. Every time he sees a bottle, whether at the beach or in the neighborhood, he picks it up. Once he has collected some, he puts them into the recycling cointainer, day after day, month after month, and year after year. I think his paragon serves as an example each of us can follow.

It means a lot to me to hear this. If you could tell him, thank him for his work. Thank him in my place and please support him. He is an example for the rest of our society and as you say yourself, I will follow him in his work. From now on I will do my best to stop the bike every now and then and pick up some cans, according to the reasoning that if everyone picks up something, there will be so much less waste already.

It is absolutely wonderful to learn there are some amazing people like your father who take upon this task of keeping our environment clean as their personal responsibility. I would absolutely go to the cinema to watch this documentary! Thank you for sharing it too, so we can all be inspired and do our part.

This is a documentry film that narrats the impact and the problems that plastic wastes couses all around the world.
If we starts from our houses by heart, we can get red off that steggering amount of plastics.

I’m not interested in documentary but after reading this review of the film ‘ A Plastic Ocean’, I really want to see the film. I think the film will give me more information about the impact of plastic waste and makes me take more actions on environment protection.

I don't understand. I am not finding any reviews of 'A Plastic Ocean' on this site. Is there any specific review which I need to read? "There are a number of reviews of this film.

Hi anik.ah,

The review is on the page above, in the 'Reading text' tab, just after 'Preparation' and before 'Task 1'. Can you not see it?
