Plastic in the Pacific

If you haven’t heard of the Pacific Gyre or the Pacific Gargage Dump, please watch this video.  Heck, watch it anyway, it’s only 7 minutes.

Think of all the things that come in plastic.  Food containers, products, shopping bags, soda cups, straws, kitchen appliances, computers, toys, sports equipment.  The list goes on and on.  Plastic is so versatile and useful.  Too bad it’s so bad for our environment.

I’ll leave you with one question.  Does it make sense to make a disposable, one time use item out of a permanent material?
