Its so sad and pathetic that after knowing all the facts about ocean pollution, we are still not controlling our plastic usage.

I can realize the evil influences of plastic waste so that i’m going to try my best to decrease plastic items in my life. I made some fabric bags to hold food while buying them from market. Futhermore, i always bring some glass boxes instead containing food in plastic containers.

I applaud you for actually making a positive effort to reduce your plastic waste footprint. I would love to see your fabric bags.

I think whole world need working together to solve global pollution, everyone play a role ,classify the garbage separation of plastic and food etc.

I would love to recommend Nas Dailly YouTube channel. The video mainly talks about a wide variety of problems and facts in all around the world. How he depicts country is very accurate and well researched. Most interesting video was how Hawaii treats homeless people. Every students should be recommended to watch and take some actions.

I usually don't see documentary films; i prefer to read some books or magazines. Concerning in particular the environmental issues, it look like many short films of the kind tend to draw attention rather than showing these themes in dept.

To be honest I am not good at it. Maybe it is time to start watching it especially as I know there are a lot of interesting documentaries on Netflix now.

What documentary films would you recommend

To tell you the truth I have just seen two episode of our planet which i strongly recommended for you guys to watch it . It is simply explain our planet and tell us about the huge problem that as human has done to the planet

The last documentary I watched was about rubber. If I remember right, it talks about how farmers receive just a minimum part of a rich business and how big companies or its suppliers stay with the big part of the cake. Those farmers make the hard work while the rubber's price increases through a chain.

Then you should know about the rubber industry which reached its peak a 100 years ago here in South America, especially in the Amazon region shared by Brasil and Bolivia. Apart from the unsustainable exploitation, all the human rights violations made by rubber firms against indigenous people. It is something shocking to see, it was practically slavery that killed thousand of aborigens. Similarly, this happened too in King Leopold's Congo, Belgian colony.
