One Plastic Beach

Richard Lang and Judith Selby Lang have been collecting plastic debris off one beach in Northern California for over ten years. Each piece of plastic Richard and Judith pick up comes back to their house, where it gets cleaned, categorized and stored before being used for their art. The couple make sculptures, prints, jewelry and installations with the plastic they find washed up, raising a deeper concern with the problem of plastic pollution in our seas.

Our 'Toxic' Love-Hate Relationship With Plastics

Freinkel's new book, Plastic, A Toxic Love Story chronicles the rise of plastic in consumer culture, and its effects on the environment and our health. She notes that plastics have had enormously beneficial impacts — like making blood transfusions safe and common. But scientists are now also finding that phthalate chemicals from IV bags and other plastics are leaching into the fluids we take into our bodies, and the effects of that are just now being understood.

Read more about what Freinkel has to say and hear her interview on National Public Radio.

Plastic State of Mind

The best way to get a message across is pick the right vehicle for the right audience. Today, the music video has come back from the dead to enjoy a major resurgence on YouTube. So Green Sangha, a spiritually engaged environmental activist organization based in California, got smart and went where the eyeballs are. They created this well produced parody that’s even got Jay-z thinking twice about plastic bags.
