This is a huge problem. With micro plastics showing up in our food and plastics replacing the sand on beaches we are on the verge of seeing something catastrophic happen to nature. They say in a couple of 10s of years plastic will out weigh all the sea life in the ocean.

That polyester in your shirt for example contributes to the micro plastic in the ocean just so you know

Women's products. Pumice wasn't good enough for them

Those beads they put in soaps and shampoos are terrible also.

Plastic bags look like jelly fish which sucks for a lot of marine life

That an actually protect our forests too...

Paper bags are made out of a renewable, recyclable materials often made from planted trees that remove atmospheric CO2 as they grow. Environmentalists have to think a little harder.

For a second I thought this topic was going to be about a Hedy Fry shopping spree.

PET - Polyethylene Terephtalate
PES - Polysulfone
PE - Polyethylene
HDPE - High Density Polyethylene
PVC - Polyvinal Chloride
