Yes I understand its a concern, Just when you look at the problem you see most of the trash is coming from other places then the USA.

How could anyone not being concerned about this major source of food for our fishermen and local economies? We have to reign in the pollution with reduction of plastic bags and with regard for sealife

There is a floating landfill called trash island that is almost the size of Texas. Miles and miles of trash.

This is a global problem regardless of the source. Biodiversity is essential ...for live (HUMANS too), we have to protect the place that gives life.

How can any sane, intelligent person not be concerned when we see a "garbage island" the size of Rhode Island in the middle of the Pacific; when we see dolphins ensnared in netting, etc.?

95% of all ocean plastic pollution comes from 10 rivers, 8 in Aisia, the other 2 in Africa. The USA contributes about 1%. htps://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4970214/95-plastic-oceans-com

The top polluters China and India are the ones who need to be held accountable not the US. Focus on the real culprits.

Most of the issue comes from third world countries that don't take care of their garbage properly and last report was 40% of plastic in the ocean was from FISHING NETS. there's work to be done but our focus is in the wrong place.

The media is breathless concerning plastic in the ocean. Eventually all the plastic breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces. When small enough, bacteria use it as a food source.

I had a stock option wire hub cap taken off my '67 Olds Cutlass convertible. It was irreplaceable.

I had an Automotive paint store for over 20 years. I had to close it when my wife's health took a rapid downhill turn. Now I'm taking care of her 24/7 with help from our 18 year old daughter. I had "Partners in I don't care" come over one time, never again do I want anyone else to care for her.
