    Trash Talks with Polly Mermaid

    A series isn't just for kids, we reckon, when it comes from Glass Half Full and Indigo Rael and tackles global environmental problems with puppetry, humor, and optimism. In three colorful and clever videos, Rael (as Polly, a plastic mermaid) and her friend Basurana (a frog made from plastic trash, puppeted by Caroline Reck) explore sustainable solutions to our current waste systems and single-use plastic. Episode three, May 1; and all videos available on YouTube through May 9.
