Our planet is entirely covered in plastic waste. The air is saturated with nano plastics, our soils are infiltrated with micro plastics without exception, the ocean is suffocating from all forms of plastic including ghost gear from the fishing industry, and none of our water supplies (including bottled water) are immune from plastic particles. Over a lifetime we consume about 44 pounds of microplastic much of which contains "forever chemicals". Recycling has always been the big corporate lie that places responsibility for the collapse of the biosphere in the hands of consumers. Plastic waste is contributing to a mass extinction event, which includes us! And, COVID has accelerated the pace of destruction as mountains of single-use plastics continue to enter the ecosystem unabated. Raising one’s consciousness is step one.
Final Cycles Mission
To take an uncompromising leadership role in creating a worldwide grassroots campaign in every community to achieve a critical mass of awareness and action to end the "global plastic and forever chemicals crisis" that is destroying our ecosystems and threatening the future survival of all life on the planet.

Article series on how we got here. By Norman Vaux
By Sigal Samuel
This 9-act screenplay is based on the fictional lives of seven individuals from Missoula, Montana, who are guided by the near invisible hand of Grampa. The central theme is the cause and effect of the plastic waste crisis and how the actors evolve by raising their awareness and taking responsibility for their actions. Each act includes 2 original songs with choreographed segments. Commercials between the acts offer unique glimpse into the plastics world. The following link offers a window into our creative process (Acts 1 and 2 only) wherein the script is being introduced through a phone conversation with Grampa’s two grandchildren, Shoshana and Alaria. Note: The use of still shots is for suggestion purposes only. https://youtu.be/dqiNhagTpWs The entire written screenplay is available upon request. This project is very much a work-in-progress, which developed without the benefit of any expertise in the field and absent financial support of any kind.
Final Cycles works with businesses that care about plastic waste and want to let their customers know it. So we're developing a Net Zero Plastic Footprint Accreditation Program. We are looking for additional volunteers to coordinate this program.
Contact our team to learn more about this program.
As the global plastic pollution crisis grows so does public awareness and legal action. Communities everywhere are demanding that legislation be passed to ban single-use plastic items, reform waste collection and restore our environment.
The legal team at Final Cycles wants to work with you to pass legislation in your area. Contact Carole Zoom, Director of Legal & Legislative Action for Final Cycles.
Hemp grows prolifically, making it an extremely efficient crop for these sustainable plastics known as 'bioplastics'. They are lightweight, biodegradable and can replace many petrochemical plastics (oil-based plastics). Hemp plastics and other hemp products can reduce the greenhouse effect by 'locking in' carbon. Contact Norman Vaux, Executive Director for Final Cycles for more on alternative plastics.

Highlighting the corporate polluters
THEME (Season 1): 12 episodes
The young audience enjoys a journey of self-discovery made possible by the juxtaposition of:
1) real life stories about the impact of plastic waste on members of the animal kingdom, and
2) animated adventures with Grampa, his two grandchildren, and fictional animal characters they befriend along the way.
Nestled in Colorado's High Desert, steps from dozens of trails and the natural wonders of the region, The CityStead Cottages are a zero plastic waste property that features three cottages, a pollinator yard, a food production yard, and sustainably and carefully furnished interiors.

Lifeguards stands were made from recycled plastics (#1, #2, and #4) and they have been attributed to saving multiple lives in Sayulita, Mexico, since they were installed. They have survived several tropical storms :)
