Brilliant read on why ocean cleanup isn't working. Basically: plastics are too fast (Stokes), water moves in "mysterious ways" (Ekman), gyres (garbage patches) aren't perfect whirlpools and most marine life in gyres doesn't/can't swim. (deja vu? )

- $5 billion could cut in half the amount of plastic entering the world's oceans by kicking off a ten-year waste management ramp-up in Asia. And since we are all connected to the ocean, that means keeping U.S. waters clean and healthy, from sea to shining sea.

Hawaiian monk . Only ~1,200 of these incredible animals left in , all in Hawaiian Islands, so seeing one’s a special thing. What’s not okay, is the amount of plastics polluting this patch of beach far outnumbers monk seals swimming the seas.

Yes—100% worth doing. There are problems w/ but we can’t demonize people trying to do the right thing. Need to eliminate most problematic single-use plastics while drastically increasing recovery of high quality plastics via policies like EPR. There’s no silver bullet.
