How to Take Plastic Recycling Full Circle
How to Wear your Commitment to the Cause
What a mess we’re creating in the world’s oceans - a mess made of plastic. Plastic bags, plastic bottles, and plastic containers have made our lives so much easier in the few short decades since their discovery, and in return, we’ve dumped them into our oceans to the tune of 8 million pounds per year, according to the U.N.

Plastic recycling in the U.S. and Europe continues to grow, but the industry as a whole is far from a mature one, and the cost of recycling for many still outweighs the gains it produces, especially for companies. And so we discuss the issue. As the days, weeks, months, and years of discussion tick by, however, the, literally, islands of floating islands of plastic in our oceans remain, buoyant against the pressure of our collective good will.
