      @Thyalwaysseek Yeah, like the plastic in your clothes, on the computer or cell you’re typing on etc etc etc.

    • @ Dunning Kruger …Exactly. I am prepared to give it all up in a heartbeat but what would that achieve? Unless every person bans plastic from their lives nothing is going to change. You get that right? We either all make the choice as a collective to ban plastic and save our oceans and environment or we just continue on doing what we’re doing pretending PR stunts and cool quotes on social media are going to change anything. Don’t get mad at me, get mad at the system you agree to every day.

    • @Thyalwaysseek We do have to change public policies and industrial systems. Individual change is not enough. We are living in a world of plastic made from oil, and that can not be accidental. It is the control big oil has over our society.

    • @Jamey Craig
      If, and only IF I first forgive Trump supporters post 2017, I don’t think I’ll ever forgive the GOP that farted away their chance to stand strong for America and instead put their individual 2020 (& 2024) re-election chances before the country.

    Amazing feat

  7. Bringing awareness is the beginning. America get righteous!❤

  8. “We all can do something small to make a change.”
    We’ve bought a set of metal straws. No more plastic ones. We’re looking at what else we can do to use less plastic in our household.

  9. The GOP will say this is all a conspiracy theory

    • You mean like the conspiracy theory that libturds said Trump colluded with Russia??

      @Trump 2020 “I dont think of a hero as someone who has been captured “The Bataan Death March (Filipino: Martsa ng Kamatayan sa Bataan; Japanese: バターン死の行進, Hepburn: Batān Shi no Kōshin) was the forcible transfer by the Imperial Japanese Army of 60,000–80,000 American and Filipino prisoners of warfrom Saysain Point, Bagac, Bataan and Mariveles to Camp O’Donnell, Capas, Tarlac, via San Fernando, Pampanga, where the prisoners were loaded onto trains. The transfer began on April 9, 1942, after the three-month Battle of Bataan in the Philippines during World War II. The total distance marched from Mariveles to San Fernando and from the Capas Train Station to Camp O’Donnell is variously reported by differing sources as between 60 and 69.6 miles (96.6 and 112.0 km). Differing sources also report widely differing prisoner of war casualties prior to reaching Camp O’Donnell: from 5,000 to 18,000 Filipino deaths and 500 to 650 American deaths during the march. The march was characterized by severe physical abuse and wanton killings, and was later judged by an Allied military commission to be a Japanese war crime.

    • It’s all fake Hawaiian birth cerrtificates spilled by a Kenyan ship during the Great Kenyan Presidential Coupe of the 1960s to about 2008 or so.

    • @Trump 2020 look my man when an American president solisits help from a foreign power that is impeachable in itself never mind the other crimes he committed like obstruction of justice,you not I can’t even get out of jury duty nevermind ignoring congressional subpoenas, regardless of party this man is assaulting our constitution period but God bless and I hope you realize that justice is beyond party.

  10. The reality of what mankind has done to our oceans is quite sad indeed. It’s heartbreaking.
