thank you for this news. thank you, Chile! I really appreciate you doing this. the u.s should be doing this - but they're not. the u.s doesn't do anything about any problems we have. this is a serious issue that needs to be taken care of now. there's too much plastic all over - not just the ocean. the u.s is one big dump! escpecially the ocean! I wish I had money, because I'd move to another country. the u.s is disgusting - for more reasons than one.
