Never have I seen an issue draw such naive, knee-jerk responses as the "ocean plastic" issue. The moment most people see plastic trash in the ocean, rational thought, apparently, disintegrates. All the stuff you saw in the ocean at one point proved a valuable, possibly lifesaving tool for someone. If it was a detergent bottle then it didn't shatter on the floor and leave shrds of glass that an infant might crawl through. If it was a plastic fork then maybe it prevented the spread of disease by being clean and sanitary right out of the package. The point is, why not try to make a difference by engaging in activities that help more of the world better recycle and recover trash? Figuring out how you can stop using plastic in your house is not going to stop 1million people in some third world country from dumping all of their trash in the street.
