CNN presents Plastic Island, an exclusive digital documentary exploring the damage plastic is doing to our oceans – and potentially to our health.
CNN got exclusive access to Midway Atoll in the north Pacific Ocean, where the plastic we throw away each day washes up on the beach, works its way into the ocean and potentially ends up in our food. This Pacific island is on the frontline of the world's fight against discarded plastic and its damage to the environment.
From the frontline, CNN’s Nick Paton Walsh, Ingrid Formanek, Jackson Loo and Mark Phillips take a closer look at the toll our disposable culture is taking on the wildlife there – and the health implications for the rest of the world.
This exclusive includes a mini-documentary, a personal essay from CNN correspondent Nick Paton Walsh, an animated video explaining microplastics and graphics illustrating the amount of plastic in the ocean and the life cycle of a toothbrush.

CNN, Instagram, and CA Technologies, in an exclusive partnership with the Empire State Building (ESB), are bringing to the New York City skyline a breathtaking display of photography, real-time election results, maps, voter mosaics and animations to commemorate one of the nation’s most significant elections. The projection on New York’s most iconic landmark begins at 8PM ET tonight — November 8, 2016 – and will continue throughout the evening, ultimately calling the race for a new President of the United States of America.
The ESB activation, produced by Obscura Digital, is the final stop and grand finale of the #MyVote nationwide tour – a partnership between CNN, Instagram, Facebook and CA Technologies.
The projections will feature Instagram images uploaded by voters from around the nation using the #MyVote hashtag. #MyVote projections will also be featured at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. and Miracle Mile in Las Vegas.
