As a kid me and my sister made lots of pocket money getting 3d back on bottles

 

.............and the back-alley of the local grocer was a rich source of bottles    :bleh:

Steve,

 

I subscribe to National Geographic.

 

The single largest source of ocean microplastics is synthetic wearing apparel

Yep! But most people don't even think of their clothes as being made of plastic.

Steve,

 

I was/am very much "like most people".  It never once occurred to me my washing machine was an evil device.

I think national geographic should concentrate on themselves ,printing millions of copies on glossy paper and artificial ink is hardly saving the planet ,they had a use in the 60's putting in pictures of topless african women for schoolboys to nudge each other over but theres no use for it anymore in the age of google
The evil is water companies not cleaning the water going down the drain from washing machines and the governments not forcing them to do it.

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness  it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

We like our plastic clothes. I have loads of them. If you had asked me whether they were made of plastic I would have thought about it for a second and said of course they are. But it didnt occur to me that they were made of plastic and shedding down the drain. Because everyone was talking about drinking straws and carrier bags. Meanwhile the high street is selling more and more and cheaper and cheaper plastic clothing.
