Hello all

I came across this short video today and thought It was actually very creative in getting it's point across.

It concerns the humble plastic bag and it's ''life cycle'' from birth to reaching it's goal of the Pacific Ocean and the Infamous 'garbage patch'..

Do other members think this is a good way of getting a message out or is it seen by others as condescending and an insult to our intelligence ??

I 'm interested in what people think ??

The clip is a couple of minutes...

the answer is to clean up whats been done and control disposal better,


instead what are they doing? taxing us more,

and in portland oregon right now they are trying to make plastic bags illegal,

why dont they just make them biodegradable? oh yeah i forgot, money.

California's pushing the limit for cannabis users and making everyone dwell on marijuana... how about a push for the plants much more important historic uses?

Hemp hurds are 77% cellulose – a primary chemical feed stock (industrial raw material) used in the production of chemicals, plastics and fibers. Depending on which U.S. agricultural report is correct, an acre of full grown hemp plants can sustainably provide from 4 to 50 or even 100 times the cellulose found in cornstalks, kenaf, or sugar cane – the planet’s next highest annual cellulose plants.

In most places, hemp can be harvested twice a year and, in warmer areas such as Southern California, Texas, Florida and the like, it could be a year-round crop.
Hemp has a short growing season and can be planted after food crops have been harvested.

Switch from petroleum-based plastics to a higher quality, cleaner, biodegradable, renewable, economy-and-infrastructure-stimulating manufacturing process/product and you're off to a really good start to a cleaner future.

The barrier of "The Law" should be nonexistent for the industrial hemp plant since it has no drug potential, and the drug-potential is what the laws were supposed to be stamping out.

The state is famously 'relaxed' on the plants drug use, the 'industry' is booming down there. So why isn't the huge industrial resource being tapped into yet?

There are a few thousand things the plant would do to stimulate most facets of local economies, and create tons of new jobs, while at the same time cleaning up the environment and weening the people off of petroleum...

Nobody is ever going to clean up the garbage patch, are they?

It's the perfect poster child for their pet projects and tax schemes.

Nothing will ever get done about any of it. We'll all just let the governments impose more legislation over us and take more of our property in the name of the great garbage patch god but it'll never get cleaned up.

It was discovered over 20 years ago. I think they've had enough time to get their act together.
