A look at 100 years of plastic and its toxic legacy.

From bottles and cups to artificial organs, plastics have been the most versatile and widely used material invented in the last 100 years, but come at a great cost.

Addicted To Plastic is a global journey which investigates the material, along with the toxic legacy it leaves behind.

Through expert interviews it also looks at practical and cutting edge solutions to recycling, toxicity and biodegradability.
