"What happens to the things we so casually throw away? In fact, much of our trash makes its way to the middle of the Pacific Ocean, where it joins one of the largest accumulations of human consumer waste on the planet. Artist and storyteller Rachel Hope Allison's debut graphic novel brings to life the plight of our oceans in a moving fable about beauty, loneliness, and hope. In association with JeffCorwinConnect (TM) Inc., I'm not a plastic bag illuminates how our behavior as consumers is slowly destroying our beautiful oceans, and shows us how each person has a role to play in protecting the planet we call home."--P.  of cover.
