I am allfor keeping plastics contained but I was thinking today about this ozone layer. We seem to have had fires raging all over the world all year plus volcanoes erupting and I wonder how all this activity comes into the equation. We have a carbon tax here to try to get us to use less heating and petrol but the savings ( if any) must be nothing in comparison to what nature is doing.

Plastic doesn't biodegrade for many, many years, and humans are to fault with more CO2  than volcanoes are.

In the Us, we cut down trees, and waste a lot of wood on stuff. We don't think to replant another tree where that tree once stood. I guess in Hawaii, they don't have plastic or paper but reusable bags. Every country should be using them instead of wood of the trees. In grocery stores they still use paper bags either to sell for like bag lunches and plastic bags for groceries and other items.We all need to be using regular reusable bags, backpacks or something else

Sea scallops suck up billions of plastic particles
A new study found rapid movement of the plastic throughout the mollusk bodies, surprising scientists.

Why is this a surprise to them?

Everything we have had plastic in it.

Even cows have plastic in their stomachs. I
