"Plastic Earth" is the first documentary feature film of its kind to cover the solutions and technologies being worked on in the world today to combat and eventually solve the plastic crisis that our world is facing.
Worldwide plastic production coming from fossil-based sources continues to rise and it contributes to climate change, pollution, and threatens the planet's species.
"Plastic Earth" follows the story of a concerned mother, Janice Overbeck. Janice goes on a journey to learn the full story of this problem and to uncover what is happening in the background to solve it. Through dozens of interviews with scientists, engineers, researchers, and innovators, Janice gets first-hand insights on how we can get this problem under control. This documentary film features many of the heroes of the world working to solve the world's plastic and environmental issues.
Co-producers/Co-directors Janice Overbeck and Jack Winch discuss how to solve the plastics crisis with Stephanie Abrams and Jordan Steele on PATTRN on THE WEATHER CHANNEL.
