yeah....so now we will have faster degrading plastics in
the earth's oceans.... think about that...

plastic sludge anyone? how will this help the planet?

How about instead, we DUMP most disposable plastic use
altogether. Bring back the biodegradable paper bag in
the super market.

Oh, and END THE BILLION DOLLAR SUBSIDIES TO THE OIL SECTOR
while we are at it...
