The official story of the Plastic Pirates

We are living in the age of plastic: plastic is everywhere. Fresh waters are not an exception: the Tisza river is one of Europe’s most heavily polluted rivers. In 2013 a NGO launched a funny boat race named as the PLASTIC Cup. The idea was simple: building plastic bottle boats from the garbage itself then getting onboard and collecting plastic from the river. The initiative grew into an international environmental campaign. Our documentary tells the story of the first 5 years.
