This made the rounds a few weeks ago, but I think it's really funny and well-done -- and deeply, sadly true. Clever and tongue-in-cheek, it tells the story of the migration of a single plastic bag from its birthplace ("the vast concrete jungles of California, home to literally dozens of animals") to "its home" -- the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

If you've never heard of the Garbage Patch (AKA the Trash Vortex, AKA the Garbage Gyre), check out this disturbing bit of journalism from VBS.tv.
