Hondar 2050 – Summary

A short documentary (barely 45mn) in which we follow Carlos, half-artist / half-beach cleaner in Spain. The documentary is quite slow and the production did not thrill us.
On the other hand, the point of view is interesting because following an artist, we are not used to seeing this type of profile in reports. He gives us his vision where he uses beach waste in his art.
? Lots of key figures incorporated throughout the report

The word waste is human, we are the only species that produce waste.

Hondar 2050 – What we remember

The horrible sight of the beaches covered in rubbish. We are all confronted with it, we muststop waste at the source.

Waste disintegrates less quickly in the ocean than on land.

The biggest risk of litter at sea is transformation into micro particles which can then be absorbed by marine animals, fish and others. In the end, we then swallow them.

Every year, 8 million tonnes of plastic end up at sea. That’s the equivalent of a whole truck every minute.

The plague of sanitary napkins found in the sea. Who today (in France or Spain) does not know that it is ESPECIALLY NOT to throw this in the toilet? A priori, not enough people.
