1. I like this.

I saw a bag blow high into a tree one windy day and because of its location I was unable to remove the bag. It quickly became a daily curiosity as I checked to see if the bag was gone. It took almost 7 years. Through high winds and rain, through bitter cold, and snow and ice the bag remained. Little by little, time and the elements took its toil on the bag. It changed colors first, then started to breakdown and slowly disintegrate. One morning I checked on the remains of the bag and there was nothing to see. Kinda sad.

3. There is

one called The Majestic Plastic Bag
and another one shown on this page called Plastic Bag
http://www.treehugger.com/culture/the-majestic-plastic-bag-documentary-on-the-plastic-cycle-of-life-video.html
Both are really good.
It's hard to look at plastic bags the same after seeing these.

7. You are so having fun!!!

A famous movie starts with an empty plastic bag being slowly blown up and down across a parking lot. Ends with that bag re-appearing. Now my day is ruined because I can't remember the movie and it will stick in my brain like suffocating plastic............
