  1. 91% of plastic isn't reusable? THEN THEY LIED TO US AGAIN! I PUT EVERY PLASTIC THING IN MY RECYCLING CAN!!! Bravo to that California recycling plant that ALSO recycles styrofoam!!!

  2. an IV tube is one use plastic. So is the super thin bag your lettuce is in, which keeps dripping meat from putting salmonella in your salad. We can do without single use plastics, but some people will have to die.

    We could make a wide mouth 2 liter plastic jar made to be re-usable, and put things like mayo in them. Then you could bring it back to the store and use it to put your bulk rice in. Those who did not re-use them could rinse them out and give away, and they could go to the hardware store to be filled with bulk nails. Manufacturers could use them for other non food items like rubber bands, fertilizer, clothespins, or pens.

  3. No matter how good we get at recycling, it is still not good enough when some folks simply toss their plastic out of the car window. We should be making things out of materials that are non-toxic and bio-degradable.
    Google "eco efficiency vs eco effectiveness" if you want to find out more.

  4. "That means it could eventually end up on your dinner plate"

    According to the latest research 73% of deep-sea fish have ingested micro-plastics. Its already happening folks.

  5. Recycling of these plastic materials is totally contraproductive. We need to take these Materials out of the production cycles and not keep them in. We need to substitute plastic with bioplastic.

  6. How governments allow dumping of plastics in the ocean is beyond criminal. IMO this type of pollution is more important than supposed global warning…oh I’m sorry Climate Change.

  7. 1 Timothy 6:10 King James Version (KJV)

    10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

    Isaiah 24 King James Version (KJV)

    24 Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.

    2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.

    3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word.

    4 The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.

    5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.

    6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

    7 The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh.

    8 The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth.

    9 They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.

    10 The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in.

    11 There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.

    12 In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction.

    13 When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done.

    14 They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the Lord, they shall cry aloud from the sea.

    15 Wherefore glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel in the isles of the sea.

    16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.

    17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.

    18 And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.

    19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.

    20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.

    21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.

    22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.

    23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

    Revelation 21 King James Version (KJV)

    21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

    2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

    3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

    4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

    5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

    6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

    7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

    8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

    9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.

    10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

    11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

    12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

    13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

    14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

    15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

    16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

    17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

    18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

    19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;

    20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

    21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

    22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

    23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

    24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

    25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

    26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

    27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
