I try doing as much as I can to decrease my harmful footprint on this beautiful world we our so grateful to have. I take the stairs when possible, recycle everything possible of what comes into my household, even composting organic material, have my own eco-friendly vegetable garden, thought about fuel/energy economy on the automobile I purchased, eat cooked meals at home, when I go to the beach, I pick up waste thrown from boats, and then look to my side and see someone throwing things out of their cars onto the street. It’s just frustrating there is no awareness.
Thank you soo much for doing your part in creating awareness. It is greatly needed.
Hi, I just watched the Vimeo trailer yesterday first time and blogged a post on it.
Now it´s working no more.
Would you please let me know if/when it is available again?
Thanks and keep the great work.

So beautifully captured. In love and awareness.
Thanks for your wonderful job. I’m fighting against lost plastic in out towns somewere in France.
I created a website http://www.plastiques.eu to try to change our behaviour about plastic, to have the reflex to pick up the plastic we find anywhere.
You can have a look and forward the information.
Sorry for the google translation…
Incredibly important work. Thank you.
Do not know how I found this clip, very emotive and moving, this scenario is been played out no doubt every where around the world, just what are we doing to our wild life and planet, thanks for your efforts and the making of this, look forward to the full film.
best regards to you all, Clive.

I just watched the trailer for this, and I must say, it is quite moving. I can’t wait to see the full feature. What is the lovely guitar piece playing during the trailer?

So simple and yet so strong a message: pollution kills. We are all interconnected in the dance of life and loss, even those not ready to hold hands and rise up. Thank you for bringing the song of grief and love to those of us who appreciate it.
In love and light, Betsey
Great work. Thank you. I wrote a little piece based on my response from watching the trailer.
Wish you every success with your work
The message is very direct through the trailer film! Oh! What to do? Really we (the humans) are not keeping the right things on right path! So let us try our level best to keep things in track started from the self, extended to family, colony, communities, villages, districts, states, countries and the whole world!
I wish we all would strive forward for the better future! I also wish the midway journey to keep up its work and do share! I wish to contribute to its work as a volunteer, if there is such possibility, especially in India to take forward the mission further!
A film about the plight of sea birds of the islands midway that eating our plastic waste die in a horrible way, dutiful look to realize the harm we do to all the inhabitants of our planet / ecosystem throwing waste into the environment and not attivandoci in a useful recycling!
Un film sulla condizione degli uccelli marini delle isole midway che mangiando i nostri rifiuti di plastica muoiono in un modo atroce, doveroso guardarlo per rendersi conto del male che facciamo a tutti gli abitanti di questo nostro pianeta/ecosistema buttando i rifiuti nell’ambiente e non attivandoci in un loro utile riciclo!!!
thank you for showing us this reality…i almost died..but thank you <3 i deeply appreciate what you are doing with your talent. Good luck!
What can we do other than donate? Contact our supermarkets to demand less packaging? Write to our local authorities to demand greater recycling schemes? Write to major retailers to encourage and empower change? Please tell us what we can do and how we can readdress the balance and stop this from happening. This is so sad and I hate to feel helpless when I have little money to contribute, as I donate what I can, when I can and sometimes I have nothing more to give.
What an excellent trailer – beautiful filming showing the beauty of the place and the devastation that we have caused. Your work helps to promote awareness of the problem and clearly demonstrates the need for urgent action.
I am 86 and not optimistic about the future for my grandchildren.The two main problems are human behaviour and overpopulation.The former will not improve but the best cure for the latter would be a very severe epidemic of something with no cure such very severe flu.Unfortunately the choice of who would be affected would be left to chance.
I have been so moved by the trailer to your film that I am seeking to make a life change and bring as many people from my community as I can with me on my journey. I’ll be organising people to take part in Plastic Free July (http://www.earthcarers.org.au/programs-and-courses/plastic-free-july/) and raise money for our locally endangered sea bird, the Grey Faced Petrel. However, I’m taking things a step further and am not going to buy any plastic products for one year. I’m looking forward to the challenge and hope to highlight how reliant we are on the plastics industry, and how difficult it is to be a discerning consumer due to the lack of choice.
Thank you for your inspiring work. It is certainly galvanising change; it only takes one individual to act at a local level make a huge difference.

Wow, thank you for this message. I was in Indonesia a few years back and a storm rolled in and so did the massive quantities of plastic, I was in shock and very disturbed by it. The smallest pieces of plastic parts, just like in those albatross. It has changed my life and how I consume. We all need to work together on this. Take off the blinders on the world!
Thank you Chris and team for all your hard work . . . I’m continually putting out the call to refuse plastic. Your images, films, poems and words help me to get the message across. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart . . .
Change begins with each and every one of us. If we do not support the manufacture of these plastic items, then they will not be made…
Being an animal lover all my life I will do my best to spread the word about plastic free July
… Because animals do not need to suffer it’s not fair !
Thank you for such a powerful message. I have now decided that when we have a new addition to our family I will make a donation for on their behalf. Perfect present. May I add that our Provincial Government now has recycling in every supermarkets for us to drop off our plastic bags. We also bring our own recycling bags when we shop it keeps landfills and the ocean a little cleaner. You can lobby your Municipal government to adopt recycling of batteries glass plastic and anything else it does not cost more. We have adopted in Canada and in Ontario and every Province to recycle. Lobby your government it can start with small project that will grow onto bigger bones.

I live in Germany now where you are not given plastic carrier bags for your shopping. Of course things come in plastic but this goes into the Gelbe sack for recycling which is picked up for free twice a month. Why can’t other countries follow this example. It’s not just plastic that is a problem in our oceans, half of the coral reefs are dead and within 50 years there will probably be no fish left either. Go veggie and save our seas.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I too am trying to do my part. We need to learn how to live with nature, and live more simple lives that use fewer resources.
I’m trying not to use plastic whenever possible. Also, I’m eating lower on the food chain. A tremendous amount of resources go into raising livestock (even free range animals.) The United Nations report Livestock’s Long shadow reports that animal agriculture accounts for more green house gas emissions than all froms of transportaion combined. Livestock is also responsible for the destruction of the rainforests, resource depletion, species extinction, the killing of much wildlife especially wolves and coyotes (who threaten lovestock), massive pollution, and much more.
A great documentary about our environment and what we can do to help is Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret.
According to Jane Goodall the best way to save wild life and the environment is to eat vegetarian, and consume less. The more we buy the more natural resources are depleted and the more waste is involved.
I thank you for bringing this to the attention of the world and there needs to be serious changes …but how do you justify filming those birds that were dying? some even chicks just babies and they were just left there to die alone.that is just so wrong!!!!
I believe that there needs to be a way to “encourage” (willingly or unwillingly) people to recycle more than they do; recycling here in NV is not as well appreciated … also wherever I travel (and I do travel quite a bit) there’s lots of trash all over the roads and places; this is a big shame to our country! we’ve got it too well and comfortable and now we’ve become complacent, ignorant, lazy and downright careless and destructive! Shame on us all ! it’s time we wake up and see what we’ve done to our planet and to ourselves, or else we all will pay the price; and there is a price to pay sooner or later! we all need to make an effort to better the planet!
Traurig aber wahr scheiss Plastik. Wir versauen damit unser und von den Tieren den Lebendsraum
I was stationed on Naval Station Midway Island during the Vietnam war in 1970.
I remember the beauty of both the island and the Many birds that called the island their home.
It saddens me to see them suffer from the calisness of humans that use the Pacific ocean as a
dumping ground. We should all be embarrassed by what continues to occur.
