Save the Seas

"After spending many years as an environmental journalist, I believed that radioactive waste pollution to be the most terrible, but now believe that if we do not stop making plastic the way it is now made, we will need to find safe ways to store the tons of single-use plastic waste generated throughout the world on a daily basis -- in much the same way we must store nuclear waste in order to keep it out of the environment."...Karin Westdyk, Author Flidgywumper Saves the Seas
