    I watched a PBS Frontline show called "Plastic Wars." Plastic waste is building up worldwide and a staggering amount of 18 billion pounds of plastic waste makes its way into the ocean every year. Our planet is beyond the crisis point and something needs to be done now. However, despite warnings, the demand for low cost plastic has increased and the plastic industry's future looks good. More work needs to be done to find alternatives to plastics.  "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" are great actions to undertake but we cannot just rely on "Recycle" because less than 10% of plastic has been recycled according to the information on this documentary.
