RE: A plastic world
The plastic island was the reason why I left greenpeace. I used to volunteer for them about 4 years ago when this issue popped out and we had a meeting to discuss whether or not open a campaign about this, but it was against they're policy to organize active actions, so... I don't know it the idea that even a big association with quite a lot of money can't do anything to fix this huge problem we created made me feel very bad.
It makes me still feel very bad :/
At the moment I'm living almost plastic free even if I can't always avoid it. It doesn't fix the problem, but it helps not to make the island grow bigger and bigger at least
