Plastic Pollution = Oil =
     = Waste = BP = Gulf of Mexico =
             = 5 oceanic Garbage Patches  =
                       = Disposable mentality = 
                                = Lack of Sustainability =
                                        = A Plethora of Planetary Problems

All inspired by Plastic Pollution Coalition's website (  My favorite line from their website (which kind of shakes up the notion of "I recycle, therefore I rock!"):
Recycling is not a sustainable solution...Unlike glass and metal, recycling plastic is costly and does not stem the production of virgin plastic product. Most of our plastic waste is land-filled, down-cycled or exported to other countries.
The Question: What are you going to do about it?

Take the Plastic Pollution Coalition Pledge:

The Answer: That's up to you!
