Plastic Fjords

Plastic Fjords

Plastic was introduced to the industrial world after World War II and optimism was huge for this new, versatile material. It is everywhere today, used in a million different ways. Enormous amounts end up as waste, and much of it as microplastic in the ocean.

Waves, weather, and wind has brought tons of plastic to the shores on the west-coast of Norway. In Plastic Fjords, we are looking for answers to what could be our biggest environmental challenge.

What impact does littering of plastic have on nature? How dangerous is it when the synthetic material ends up inside our bodies? What happens to animals who eat it?
