  1. Plastic form dead things it is now so clear
    How could I fail to understand
    Cities are burning the trees are dying
    My heart awake but still
    pain is killing me
    Pain is killing me…

  2. you are correct, i know alot of people who think it is fake. and i can tell u, my spouse is getting paid monthly for doing some surveys and browsing sites. i got it from here. you can also try it: bit.ly19rB5fg

  3. Thank you for posting and making me aware. I am deeply shocked! I do recycle but from now on I will not use plastic shopping bags. I will approach my local authority to question how they recycle bottle components and modify my usage if necessary.

  4. Maybe that’s the only reason we were allowed to evolve. The earth wanted plastic. Didn’t know how to make it.

  5. It’s not that people throw these plastics into the ocean. They just find there way there by any number of ways. This video is a sad statement on the general attitude of most all highly industrialized countries. It’s t as if governments could be unaware of this situation. People need to wake up and see what we are doing to this planet and it’s natural resources. It is shocking that any level of sustainability can be taken seriously at the rate we are going.

  6. @mjdrafting I mean yes of course I get that. But I just find it hard to believe people throw THAT much into the ocean 😮 Its crazy lol

  7. Dudn’t ur skool teachr tell u.

    It rains, rain flows into rivers, rivers flow into oceans.

    Any garbage you drop on the ground flows with that water into the oceans.

    This is grade 4 geography.

  8. Can someone please tell me how all the plastic ends up in the ocean anyways? Thats what I’m confused about..

  9. obviously enough intelligent people care..but you don’t seem to be intelligent for passing comments like that.how can you not care about our environment???you must be really stupid or do you just like to live on a mountain of rubbish??

  10. Let’s stop buying crap. YOU DON’T NEED A BANANA PEELER. Think of the oil (etc) it takes to produce that JUNK. WARS ARE MADE OF OIL.

  11. check out this girl, she found a solution!!

  12. If I buy bottled water, I make sure it’s in a glass bottle, it not only reminds me to recycle but it’s MUCH better for the environment. Bottle water should be used for emergency situations only IMO.
