    And now used masks and empty hand sanitizer bottles have joined the discarded products waste stream.

    I understand there are some pet owners who spin their shed pet hair – dog and/or cat, as far as I’ve seen – into a sort of wool…

    In 10,000 years that’s what archeologists will call us.

    Plastic is made of carbon.

    Plastic garbage = carbon sequestration.

    Problem solved.

    Any of those things shown in frame one already can be replaced with a non-plastic item.

    @alien-11: but at what cost to the source and the environment?

    Instead of trying to travel to Mars, why doesn’t Elon Musk invent something we can all use, like a replicator.

    Nothing wrong with plastic if it is disposed of properly and not discarded and littered about responsibly….

    We all have to try to wean ourselves off single-use plastics both big and small. And, while we’re at it, I am surprised styrofoam is still a thing.

    Sadly, those plastic items would best be cleaned up and put into – a large plastic bag. There really has to be a better way. I remember living without plastics pretty much as a child. We did just fine. Fast fashion is awful for the environment, yet it’s the youngest generation that claims to be so environmentally conscious that is happily buying new clothes made out of plastics and soon discarding them for new ones, since they are so inexpensive. I plan to work harder on only buying cotton and other natural fabrics in the future, even though I have always preferred them anyway. And I won’t change over my wardrobe often, either. Who says we have to update our wardrobe so regularly? If it’s still good, wear it. Then use cotton items as rags rather than paper towels. Don’t even get me started on the expense and landfill issues with paper towels!

    I judge the wealth & poverty of a nation by how much garbage is lying around.

    When I 1st moved to Tanzania, I was a bit dismayed when people would indiscriminately toss their wrappers of empties out the bus window.

    There are no garbage cans to be found when you’re out & about.

    But the streets are spotless. People are so poor that your tossed plastic bag makes someone else better off.

    At home we would set our own trash on display to be picked over, then burnt the next day if anything was left.

    Near my home in Belize is a hand cranked ferry over a river.

    A lot of trash gets tossed while people wait, so I always bring a bag & pick up trash while I wait for my ride. Other cars watch me, but so far no one has helped.

    With a mischeivous look in my eye, I’ll tell other dr4ivers that if you pick up a bag of trash they let you ride for free. Half get the joke (the ferry is always free). The other half think, “Stupid gringo.”

    I recently realized that in depictions of centuries past, we never see much of a trash problem. I figure it’s because most waste could be burned, decomposed, or smelted. The introduction of plastic changed things.

    “Man is in the forest!” There is such a thing as recycling. Have we forgotten how to pick up after ourselves in nature or did we simply stop caring?

    Refined oil is relatively new and plastic is even newer.

    Here’s a rhetorical question for you → What did we use before they came along? Or maybe not so rhetorical when we finally run out of oil to refine (and that WILL happen eventually).

    An article today said that some scientists have made plastic out of E. Coli. The plastic lasts for about 45 days before disintegrating.
