I totally agree w you re: the toxicity & sheer wastefulness.
And yes educating people does take time but seems a better use of energy in the long run.
Just last weekend my girls & I were at the beach and these (obvious) tourists were snorkeling... one man came up to the surface w a glass beer bottle; showed his friends; then turned & tossed it back out into deeper water!!???! You'd better believe I told them when they came out that it would have been just as easy to bring it to any of the dozen + trash cans in the area; instead of tossing it back out to possibly break & wash up shards of glass on the shore where ppl are fishing & swimming!!
They mumbled something about being sorry & not thinking about it...
Now maybe they went home laughing at the crazy lady at the beach but maybe they &/or anyone else that was near by WILL think about it next time...
Plastic is in almost everything we touch; telling people never to use it will close a lot more ears than encouraging responsible use...just my perspective...
