You don't have to apologize to me, it's your site/forum after all. I didn't find either of the two other posters worthwhile here. And I am a troll.

But I don't understand all this wringing of the hands bullshittae. It accomplishes nothing, and the world just goes on as before.

It would be nice to substitute biodegradable substances for many applications of plastic, that are intended to be short-lived.
I know all my family's plastic goes into the municipal recycling stream, but can't see or change what happens after that.
Other than avoiding buying products in plastic bottles, to the extent possible, what can I do about this?

Here's a 15-minute special on Midway Island, and the quantity of plastic that washes up on it:

the original article was about the much MUCH Larger problem of millions of miles of super tiny plastic particles working their way into everything.

Okay Mr. Gillie, you own a business that has to have lots of plastic packaging come into your kitchen and freezers.  Things like cooking oil must come in big plastic containers, frozen food items are in plastics inside if cardboard boxes, etc.  Perhaps lots of plastic cups and plates and 'silverware' too.  Do you have a conscious plastic recycling protocol???

I agree. Saying God should wipe out 80% of humanity is a terrible thing to say. It's his planet. He can do what he wants. I said that was the space I was in. When you consider the earth's human population is 21/2 times larger than just sixty years ago, you have to ask if that's sustainable. The possibility of a systemic ecological collapse is very real. If we kill the oceans, how much of humanity will survive? I feel bad for saying it. I really do.

Plastic can't be that un-biodegradable, there must be loads of ways technology can find answers.

in a system, one can only do what one can do.
We CAN do something, but amazingly, most whom I see, don't really care to do anything.

Owning a business I can effect more than most, within practical financial restraints.

I now have two dumpsters, one for garbage and one for recycling. $100 cheaper than sending them both as garbage. The recycle dumpster can take cardboard loose or plastic/metal/glass IF in a clear garbage bag. Both are always overloaded each week -

We have no choice but to buy bulk in plastic, but bear in mind, BULK plastic uses MUCH less plastic than you might use for the same amount of meals in small HOME plastic containers.
so by Restaurants doing it instead of YOU doing it at home, the environment is helped.
we use China and Steel for much of our meals, take outs are styrofoam (mainly NOTHING but air)
We recycle the bulk plastic containers, but get a lot of resistance from employees who prefer to put it in the garbage for some reason I can not figure out!! in this area, urban suburban, home recycling is RARE because of redneck refusal to comply.

 as opposed to where I live, in farm area, all the residences recycle! go figure

I noticed a lot of craft beer six packs using bio-degradable packaging now.

Adidas creates trainers made from plastic ocean debris in bid to end pollution 
Quote:Adidas are set to launch new editions of their popular Ultra Boost trainers, which will be made using plastic found in the ocean.
This is a step closer for the brand in its aim to end pollution. Just last November, the sportswear company reported they had teamed up with Parley for the Oceans, an environmental group aiming to raise awareness of ocean pollution.
Helping to achieve its goal of creating one million pairs of the Ultra Boost style, Parley for the Oceans will produce trainers made from recycled ocean waste. Made up of 11 reused plastic bottles in each pair, the Ultra Boost' laces, lining and sock lining covers will be made of other recycled products, making for an environmentally-friendly high-performance product.

Plastics are made from petroleum.  What would be nice is if we could find a cheap way to convert used plastics into a motor fuel.
