We all know our planet is swimming in plastic. But most people don’t know that our bodies are full of it too. The startling new documentary "Plastic People: The Hidden Crisis of Microplastics" travels the world to help us look at plastic in a new way. Featuring significant “first of its kind” footage, the film lays bare the threat posed by microplastics in the human body and the impressive advocates searching for a solution. In this panel, the team behind the film join Plastic Pollution Coalition to explore the film's relevance and power in this critical moment for the plastic discussion.
