With stop-motion animation, heartfelt kid commentary, and interviews of experts and renowned scientists, Microplastic Madness is a fun and inspirational exploration of how kids can lead the world to a future free from microplastics.
Microplastic Madness is the story of 56 fifth graders from Red Hook, Brooklyn – living on the frontline of the climate crisis – whose actions on plastic pollution morph into extraordinary leadership and scalable victories.
These eleven-year-olds dive deep into the root causes of plastic pollution, taking on the roles of citizen scientists and community advocates. They collect local data, lead community outreach, and use their own local resources to inform policy by testifying and rallying at City Hall. Then they turn their focus back to school, taking action in their cafeteria to eliminate all single-use plastic!
A charming, hopeful and entertaining film about the power of kids to change the world, Microplastic Madness will change the way you see plastics forever.
