'Ordinary guy' video looks at plastic bags

By Don Loepp | April 5, 2013 12:59 pm ET

What's so funny about plastic bags, litter and recycling?

Corporate comedian Marty Pollio took a crack at answering that question with a video that's featured on the Western Plastics Association's website. 

The video is titled "An ordinary guy giving his opinion on how to improve our ecology."

WPA is eager for more people to see the clip, which has been on YouTube for a few months, so I thought I'd share it with Plastics Blog readers. The topic is plastics, much of the focus is on grocery bags, and Pollio has a low-key, everyman sort of style.

It's not laugh-out-loud stuff, but its not bad.
