INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Plastic Waste

 

We love the convenience of plastic, but our to-go containers and other common items may end up as unsightly litter along roadsides and find their way into streams, ending up in the ocean where the plastic injures or kills marine life. Is there too much reliance on plastic products or are we just not responsible with the products we use? Is there a solution to our plastic waste problem?

Circus, Part 1 of 2

Travel back to 1793 Philadelphia, when America’s first circus was established, and witness its crash into American culture. The arrival of P. T. Barnum in 1871 transformed the trade, and the five Ringling brothers created a spectacle of their own.
