How about we ban people who are mean spirited and wish harm to others?

Quote:Plastic was the furthest thing from Gregory Wetherbee’s mind when he began analyzing rainwater samples collected from the Rocky Mountains. “I guess I expected to see mostly soil and mineral particles,” said the US Geological Survey researcher. Instead, he found multicolored microscopic plastic fibers.

The discovery, published in a recent study (pdf) titled “It is raining plastic”, raises new questions about the amount of plastic waste permeating the air, water, and soil virtually everywhere on Earth.

India and China are responsible for 90% of the worlds plastics pollution.  What do you supposed we do about it?

I don't know if they are responsible for it but I know they buy it from us and recycle it into new products

I so totally agree with you !!

In the first 20+ years of my life, I was unaware of any plastic-anything, anywhere.  
Bags were made paper, cotton or burlap (a hemp product).
Packaging was paper, cardboard or glass.
Glass was often recycled (milk bottles, etc.).

I looked up the timeline of plastic, and found this link, which confirms that plastic didn't come into wide use until the 1960's.  

"1960s High-density polyethylene bottles introduced and soon replace glass bottles in most applications"

Oh boy...my propylene glycol deodorant/anti-freeze comes in a polyethylene bottle.

Even my car is made out of plastic...and even people... Ham

We have to be really careful about the containers that chemicals are placed in.
I remember about 40 years ago, I had bought a room deodorizer that was supposed to keep the house smelling like springtime, or some such thing.
Anyway, having two bathrooms (and teenage kids) I poured half of it into another container (a plastic container) and put in the downstairs bathroom.
Good grief !! ... The following day I went into that bathroom and the entire bottom portion of the the container had dissolved !! Scream1 and there was a pool of the chemical deodorizer on the floor !!

Heavenly Father, please keep President Donald J. Trump and his family safe and protected, along with all the Patriots who are working with him and for him. Protect and Nurture our Nation and help us through these turbulent times. We ask this in the Name of Christ  Amen
