Message from a bottle

Etiopia 2018

Of the 8.3 billion tons of plastic produced since 1950, only 9% has been recycled. At least 8 million tons end up in the sea every year. How can the course of this announced disaster be reversed? The documentary tells the simple and innovative experience of PET recycling in the Ethiopian city of Hawassa. A chain of positive reactions that can infect a continent.
The documentary was made in collaboration with CIFA as part of the Frame, Voice, Report! of the Piedmontese NGO Consortium.
