@halfabubble It might make sense to you if you lived in a coastal state. Florida has a huge problem with plastic bags ending up in their waterways, clogging their drainage systems and causing serious back-ups and flooding.

One of the most serious threats to our oceans is plastics pollution. Plastic constitutes approximately 90% of all trash floating on the ocean’s surface, with 46,000 pieces of plastic per square mile. Dwell on that.

@wardnjune There are 27,878,400 square feet per square mile. Dwell on that.

Will they? That's a mighty big number for some to grasp.
