Horrific & depressing statistics - we are drowning in a world of plastic and waste - it's hard to believe how we as individuals can make a difference but we have to start somewhere and that somewhere is at home looking at our own use of plastic & then pressurising business and government to make changes and effect policy - one tip whenever you buy fish and chips, takeaways etc make sure that they do not use plastic or polystyrene containers and if they do have a word - I've visited environmentally aware places and even they have served food in plastic/polystyrene containers!

I live in Gloucestershire but it was only when I came Nurdling on Kimmeridge Beach and realised the horrific impact that plastic beads have on local wildlife that I became fully aware. As one of the older generation I recall that most of our containers in childhood were not only glass but reusable - milk bottles on the doorstep, pop bottles refunded when returned. My children's holidays in France were spent earning pocket money by collecting used wine bottles from our campsite which gained them 1franc for each one they returned. Not a bad habit to instill in youngsters. We've a long way to go to get back to where we were in post war Britain but it's something we have to be made accountable for. BE BRAVE AND TAKE YOUR UNWANTED PLASTIC PACKAGING BACK TO W STORE WHERE YOU BOUGHT IT. That might make the big supermarkets put pressure upon the manufacturers to come up with better alternatives.

We are striving to make changes in our fish and chip shop, reverting to
Grease proof paper and paper packaging. All these changes cost and we as a business have to absorb these costs. But we're determined to make changes.

Good point about this may cost businesses more. We have to publicise their efforts and encourage them with public support to out compete the businesses that don't make the effort. - Simon.

We must drip on about it. Dripping water wears away stone. We must be drips to save our seas.

It shocks us that as a planet we have become addicted to plastic packaging, but you only have to go back a microsecond in geological time to realise that it doesn't have to be this way and we managed fine in the 1970s with paper bags, recyclable glass and tins. Many consumers don't want or need this plastic and ALL of us are the driving force for change. But it has to be now, TODAY. Some may say we're too late already, and they may well be correct unless there is FUNDAMENTAL change immediately. We must work with nature, always.

We originally came from the sea, now we dump rubbish in it and the oceans simply wave it back to us, sometimes as food! Who's the clever one in all this? Sign petition https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/202198 and stop plastic seas. Yes we can.

I was on a cruise over Christmas and New Year from Cape Town. Sailing northwards we visited Maputo,Dar Es Salaam, Zanzibar and Mombasa, before crossing the Indian Ocean. I was appalled at the rubbish including plastic not only in the sea near these ports, but the empty plastic bottles lying everywhere in the towns, in the gutters and any crack or cranny at the side of the road. In Zanzibar there was an attempt to re-use plastic water bottles to sell oil in the local market!

I have seen similar in harbours in the caribbean, particularly in stormy weather when the rain washes all the rubbish into the sea.

We certainly need to encourage these undeveloped countries and help and educate them to deal with their rubbish properly. A proportion of our foreign aid budget could surely be used to great effect.
