I visit beaches all over the world and constantly find pieces of beach toys. Not to take the fun out of beaches for kids, but lets consider playing with what nature gave us and educate our kids on playing with nature and just enjoying the sand and water and all the little shells and creatures without all the plastic pails, shovels and toys - at least these should be made mandatory bio-degradable, just like no one wants BPA in baby bottles, we should take the same consideration for our oceans' sea life as no one surely wants to ingest BPA in their seafood dinner! We can prevent the problem all together rather than fix it and educate our children to appreciate the oceans and protect them from unnecessary plastic toys and debris. Keep it simple

We can all avoid the entire (bio)plastic by just putting our cups/bottles in the sand as a holder - the way nature intended and not promote or use any "cup holder" - is it really necessary to begin with? The sand acts as a natural insulator keeping your drinks cold (or warm) , it's free and is 100% pollution free. Lets solve this issue easily by not being consumers of wasteful items in the first place.
