“We’re All Plastic People Now” investigates the hidden story of plastic and its effects on human health. Plastic pollution has become ubiquitous, with plastic particles found in every corner of the globe.

"It's in the air. It's in the water. It's in the food. It's in all of our bodies," according to Rolf Halden, Ph.D., an environmental engineer from Arizona State University, who appears in "We're All Plastic People Now."

The documentary reveals the discovery of microplastics in human placentas, as reported by Italian researcher Dr. Antonio Ragusa, who warned, "For humanity, plastic is the end of the future."

In an era of throw-away ease, convenience has cost us our well-being. Plastics have been found inside our bodies- in our colons, our brains, and even in mothers' developing wombs. Scientists around the country are sounding the alarm, but without public buy-in, there is little that can be done. How much evidence do we need before we decide to take action?
