Big Oil doesn't want the planet to be plastic free. Instead of investing in alternatives for the greater good, they just keep stepping on attempts reduce the pollution. The Greedocracy at work.

People need to recycle plastics. Step up and do their part. It's easy and saves our planet.

While we the people do our bit to keep plastic out of the ocean and conserve our planet - it's the Trawlers, Tourist Ships and Canning factories on Super Tankers who dump plastic, waste cargo from the port they left, and their own crap, into our over fished seas. Banning them all for just 10 days a month could make a big difference.
Found a couple of Petitions to sign from Surfrider Foundation . Thanks

Stores do love to push those crappy plastic bags on us, don't they? I've been trying to do the plastic-free lifestyle, and it is VERY hard! Why does organic food come in plastic shrink-wrap and clamshell tubs??? Thanks for sharing this article with Care2.

This is a "DISGRACE" ???? We certainly cannot undo what we already have done but "WE" MUST now do a Better Job of not continuing the Damage !!!! Do away with PLASTICS altogether, go to Biodegradables and Back to Glass with REUSABLES like it was in the Past, make it MANDATORY that EVERYONE "RECYCLE" and Prosecute the ones that Don't !!!! It's not Rocket Science it's just a little extra WORK that this Society seems to be Afraid Of ????

Thanks Christeen ........
