Green Light – Ocean Plastic

It’s common knowledge that our oceans have increasingly become dumping grounds for discarded plastics that make their way into floating masses miles wide. But even if it were collected, where would we put it all?

As Mother Earth News reports, green-minded company Method has just begun marketing ?bottles made from a blend of plastic recovered from the ocean and post-consumer recycled plastic.?

Method co-founder Errol Schweizer told reporters that ?the most viable solution to our plastic pollution problem is using the plastic That’s already on the planet.?

Currently It’s believed that ?several million tons of plastic make their way into the oceans each year,? with dangerous consequences to marine life and the general ecosystem.
