Every time I say to myself "I will be positive and focus on the good in life", I come across something like this article. I heard about this... a sea of floating plastic, growing every day. You know those nice cruise ships? They just tossed the trash into the ocean. Plastic doesn't sink people. Stop buying those plastic bottled waters and plastic soda bottles! Stop using plastic grocery bags. I know it's impossible to stop using all plastic but really, do we NEED to use so much? And are you recycling it? I am guilty of putting a lot of that in the trash but now I know better. Sometimes things that are invented to make life easier, just end up ruining it. One positive though: they are starting to make "plastic" out of corn and this is supposed to disintegrate eventually. But for the rest of plastic that's ever been made, well, it will be around FOREVER. Think about that.
