    most people do not know how to recycle, all recyclables are contaminated with food and trash... not sure how to teach kids to became sensible adults.

    If they were paid to take the stuff, they don’t have any right to send it back.

    We send our plastics to other countries who are supposed to recycle it but they just tow the barges out to sea and dump it. We must either eliminate ALL plastic bags or melt them down and reprocess them.

    One thing cannot be gone isis tell the wind and waves how to react to ocean bound garbage. The Pacific Ocean is am East to West current, so as much is being spread as a "Garbage Island that will invade the entire United States west coast. Super ships dump invasive species all over the world in addition to their huge "garbage cans of refuse." What do entertainment cruise ships do with all the trash generated for convenience. Corporations don't care. Maybe converting paper to plastic instead of cutting forests, just to read a newspaper or receive a package. Maybe robots can be programmed to have a diet of plastics. When ponting fingers, the ratio is four to one back at you.

    The worst plastic rubbish that I have seen in the sea has been in Southern Italy and a number of Asian countries . I have read that Sweden and Norway actually have processing plants and are concerned about getting sufficient rubbish to keep the going. Maybe they should send it there. My feeling is that we had glass bottles when I was growing up. If people are really concerned as I am, vote with their buying power. Don’t buy the products and the companies will have to re-think . If we went back to the packaging of the 60’s with any improvements that our advancing technology will allow.
