Plastics One Through Seven

Directed by Liese Dart

How one woman's idea in North Freedom, Wisconsin changed an entire industry and made a whole nation look for a tiny little number


Meet Millie Zantow, 86, resident of North Freedom, Wisconsin and an environmental hero -- at one point she was the only person sorting plastic in America. Her very simple question & revolution led to years of tenacious advocacy that turned the heads of the EPA and led to a national recycling policy — a veritable plastics revolution.
