From How Many Marine Mammals Did Your Plastic Grocery Bag Kill Today? posted by: Jennifer Mueller Care2

With DisneyNature opening a new film about the ocean on Earth Day, scientists confirming an Atlantic garbage patch that rivals the one in the pacific, I think we are going to be hearing a lot more about plastics in our oceans. The attention will be well deserved but I struggle with is what to do next. Surfrider and others suggest we all reduce our plastic use and therefore plastic trash. Great. But, is that going to do it?

The city of San Francisco and the entire country of China banned plastic bags entirely. What do YOU think we should do about PLASTIC in the OCEAN?
