The plastic you see and use every day is killing endangered birds, sea turtles and seals by the hundreds of thousands. Every year animals get tangled up in plastic, or eat it, with fatal consequences.

I signed the petition, bu tit seems to be a bit incomplete. It gives no answers to a really broad problem. How exactly do we propose that the EPA of all agencies, get all the plastic out of the oceans...

A good start would be to stop making plastic from oil Now. Make it out of hemp or other totally biodegradable components.

Agree with Mary, there is no precedent to know how to exactly clean this up, so it would be a good time for some of the great minds around the world to come up with a solution. There is so much in the ecosystem already, this needs to be addressed. Maybe every cruise ship, freighter, etc. that pass by any of these dumps should have to bring back a load of it...............

Gladly signed/ noted, this issue needs more exposure so people will understand why we need to Green up all products used worldwide. Thank you Cher.
