Opis materiału Our Plastic, Our Problem (A marine litter info-operetta!)

                  The Amazing Mr. Smashing sings an info-operetta about plastic in our oceans!

[If you would like to use this video for your event, presentation or exhibition, please contact [email protected]].

Our huge level of consumption and the accompanying waste it creates is leading to terrifying amounts of plastic entering our seas. All sorts of unpleasant effects are being discovered by researchers, including plastics acting as magnets for toxic chemicals, which are then being swallowed by sea life. We must act now to stop any more plastic reaching the oceans. There are many ways to do this, and every person can make simple changes in their lives to reduce their impact, but we also need the laws in place to ensure action by European governments.

2014 is the year that the European Commission reviews its various waste policies, including the waste framework directive. This means we have an opportunity to recognise the seriousness of marine litter and take strong steps to reduce waste and improve how it is managed. Let's show the law makers how much we care about our beautiful beaches and seas: like and share this video, using the hashtag #marinelitter and let's make a noise about the problem of plastics in our seas!

If you could invent a method of sterilization of plastic without causing any allergic reactions to the skin that would be the next billion dollar idea to the planet.  You can't just melt it down I feel unless you create new uses for plastic other than bottling and pez dispensers.  Plastic hats and shoes maybe but then you would have to study the feet related problems that arise as a result.  Plastic Art maybe and then create some kind of tax incentive for people buying recycled related plastic art.

makes me laugh when I see the news and they show images of rivers contaminated by oil and mine minerals, but hardly or never are to be seen the worst things, anyway, no that i would like to drop some names, i know i'm a bad singer.
