    Yes the "sea of plastic" whether it's the Pacific, the Caribbean, or the waters off India or Indonesia or just about anywhere in the world now, is a major environmental concern that is not getting the publicity it deserves. Recycling plastics does not seem to be working...maybe making a very small dent in some locals. The better remedy would be to go back to what we did before plastic containers were invented...reusable glass bottles, but also biodegradable cardboard containers. My wife and I bring our own bags to the grocery store, and more people are doing that, but so many products come wrapped in plastic already, from produce to milk containers to bread to pre-packaged food items. The awareness is increasing, but progress is slow.
