    Am I the only one who thinks that the plastics-industry is just another petrochemical outlet (like gasoline and diesel are) and we are in the midst of a "compensational crisis", meaning: less and less cars with combustion engines are driven/sold and the amount of drilled oil is so high, with extreme low prices, followed by lowered profits, that overproducing plastics is a viable solution to said losses? With all the, damn well visible and destructive, consequences?

    How strange. I thought banning plastic straws (and then wrapping paper straws in plastic sleeves) was supposed to fix this.

    If you have ever been to an area where this is prevalent, it is truly a sad situation. Eventually that plastic finds its way to the shore or sinks to the ocean floor.

    I think if everyone looked at the world and saw the mess it causes they would see outside of their own zone. Everything is suffering because people just see what they see around them.
