Welcome News From Good Friends in Far-Away Places

I got a message a few days ago from a friend in Newfoundland, telling me about watching Message in a Plastic Bottle. I’d sent him a copy a month or so ago, and he wanted to let me know that since he and his wife had watched the film, they hadn’t used any single-use plastic bottles. “I knew as soon as we watched it,” he said, “that we weren’t going to be having any more of these. Plastic bottles are no longer part of our life, and we’re also taking a closer look at other areas where we might be able to consume less.”

Of all the comments I’ve gotten from various people since the film was made, that one meant the most.
